Zoom (Videoconferencing and Instant Messaging)

New River has implemented Zoom as the official instant messaging and videoconferencing application for the College. The Zoom client is free for all New River students and employees and is installed on all college-owned computers, but you can download it to your computer for free (Download Zoom). If you need any assistance, please contact our Help Desk (304-929-6725).


Software Updates

An ongoing project for us is to keep the software updated on over 700 computers throughout all our locations. We've purchased an application that makes this task possible (Flexera) but we need each employee to help. At the end of the workday, please logout of your computer but do NOT power it off. Your updates will be installed early each morning before you arrive at the office and you'll have fewer problems as a result. Thanks for your assistance with this tremendous task.

New River CTC uses Windows 10 as our primary operating system and Office 2016 as our productivity suite on all employee-issued computers, classroom, and lab computers. Employees needing these updates should contact our Help Desk with your upgrade request (304-929-6725 or


Alert Messaging System

Since July 2012, the New River Alert Messaging system has been a part of the College portal. Messages are sent by key administrators (video tutorial) and delivered via three separate channels to users. Even without taking any action, all users receive the messages on two of those channels (as pop-ups when you login to the portal and as emails in your New River inbox). To receive text messages on your cell phone, users must complete the following steps:

  1. Once logged into the portal, click the Menu option in the menubar and then select My Account.
  2. On the right side of the My Account information page, look under Identification and click SMS.
  3. Choose your cell phone service provider and type in your cell phone number (with no hyphens, dashes or spaces, e.g.; 3045741123).

If you try to update your cell information in the portal and receive an error, please contact our Help Desk. We developed an FAQ for common questions regarding the system.
