For years nothing has served as CTU’s primary depot of information on its fourfold function. Mushrooming of these sites that reflect CTU’s views, that is, the perspectives of the stakeholders, has become a consequence of the lack of proper channel that directs every member to the official site which serves as the one-stop avenue for information seekers all across the globe. The supposed “internet additive” , had these pieces of information been gathered in the previous years, would have given CTU not just a name but “presence” in today’s information highway.
Urgency may have attracted the present administration to address the major concern as government transactions have also demanded the same level of efficiency for client’s optimum satisfaction. Gearing up for the massive change eludes visionaries in the university headed by the president such that he believes it is high time to make it official— the university’s WEBSITE.
The coalition of writers from different campuses speeds up the initiative to blur the circumstance previously cited. Not only are these people determined to write articles to speak of the university’s accomplishments but also to discriminate obstacles along.
One of the major tasks is to get through the writing habit. Love for writing must first be honed to sustain the stories needed in the weekly updating of entries in the official sites. Hence, through Dr. Roselyn T. Bustos, University Publication Director, a seminar-workshop on writing was conducted to refresh writers on the craft and craftsmanship needed to be shown.
Talents were tapped from Higher Education Institutions in Cebu to take part in the unveiling of new trends for writers. They are one of those battle-tested entities who in many ways have exclusively felt the demands of their expertise. Reception from CTU writers yielded great results reflective of the inspiration to start the uploading of articles for the website. Launching of the official site is much needed which necessitates gathering of stories that should be taken as seriously as possible.
For months the conventions have taken their tolls on the members who need to travel from their areas to the main campus just to fulfill the responsibility mandated by the president himself who sees things always coming back to benefit the university.
Alongside publication of articles is the empowerment of MIS workforce to provide a workable and efficient environment in the net. Prof. Johaness Camasura, University IT Director, has earned the cooperation of the MIS coordinators, Graphics and Design personnel and others across the system as the Interconnectivity Project has proved useful by far since its installation.Come Wednesday, just after weeks of devotion to the project , everyone involved is pushed at the edge of his seat as the official site per campus will be launched so that the appropriate “avenue” becomes the “only source” of quality, CTU information.
