  • 8. Why Should We Consider RCampus for Our School?
    • We currently have to access two separate locations to post and share grades (Easy Grade Pro and Edline).
      • RCampus combines gradebooks, class rosters, and course pages for student viewing on one site.
  • 9. Why Should We Consider RCampus for Our School?
    • We have trouble communicating news, updates, concerns, etc… to faculty and staff.
      • RCampus allows faculty and staff to create private pages for posting information and sending messages to single or multiple colleagues.
      • Save paper and stress over making copies for office mailboxes.
  • 10. Why Should We Consider RCampus for Our School?
    • Parents want all assignments for grade levels on one page, instead of having to go to different teacher pages.
      • Teachers can create grade-level pages where daily homework can be posted by all teachers who have access to page.
      • Teachers can set alerts to remind themselves and students/parents about due dates.
      • Teachers can email parents and students from class rosters.
  • 11. Why Should We Consider RCampus for Our School?
    • We often cannot upload grades to Edline to share with parents because our server malfunctions.
      • RCampus does not require a server. As long as teachers have Internet access, grades and other information can be updated for parent/student viewing.
  • 12. Why Should We Consider RCampus for Our School?
    • We do not have a technology coordinator in our building to help with troubleshooting.
      • RCampus has how-to guides on all pages for creating and maintaining aspects of system.
  • 13. Why Should We Consider RCampus for Our School?
    • We are currently in a rut in many areas and have varying levels of ability with our technology tools
      • The faculty can learn how to use RCampus together to build comfort with CMS/technology and start fresh with a new, up-to-date, user-friendly system.
