Web Tip Wednesday

website landing pageIn response to student survey feedback, we will provide you with a weekly tip about how to navigate the website (cpcc.edu) to find the information and tools you most need as a Central Piedmont student. Did you know there is a Current Students ‘dashboard’ page? Visit  https://www.cpcc.edu/current-students. You can access this dashboard from the Current Students link in the top right corner on every page of cpcc.edu.

If you don’t see the information you need, or have suggestions for improving the student dashboard page, send an email to helpdesk@cpcc.edu or call 704.330.5000. Check back next Wednesday for another web tip!

 

The New Website is Coming Tuesday (4/30)!

What’s in it for me, as a student?
We’re only days away from the launch of the new website (cpcc.edu)! It will include a dedicated “Current Students” section that’s accessible from every page on the site. The purpose of the area is to provide quick links to the content and tools you need to be a Central Piedmont student, such as Blackboard, MyCollege, and student email, plus links to support services and ways to get involved at the college. If we missed a link to information you commonly use, just let us know by emailing the Help Desk at helpdesk@cpcc.edu.

What’s new?
This is not a new surface put on the old website: Central Piedmont teams plowed through the nearly 30,000 pages of content on the current cpcc.edu website and create a thoroughly modern, student-focused way to present the information the site visitors needed to know. The new site is just that: completely new.

The look and feel, functionality, and voice of the new website were created with a lot of input from hundreds of faculty, staff, and students like you… from multiple focus groups, to in-person meetings with Student Government Association (SGA) leaders, to surveys all students could use to give feedback. We are confident we heard what you want, and built a new website that will meet — and exceed — your needs.

So come celebrate with us! As a reminder, you’re invited to Central Piedmont’s celebration next Tuesday, April 30, as we launch the college’s new logo, new colors, and the new website (cpcc.edu). Here are details:​
