Benefits of e-learning

  • Access training anytime, anyplace.
  • Learn at your own pace.
  • Take courses on the internet, or download them to your PC and work offline.

Tips for getting the most from your e-learning experience

  • With your supervisor, schedule your e-learning just as you would if you intended to go to a
    class. Your supervisor must approve, in advance, all your e-learning coursework taken during work hours.
  • To avoid interruptions at your desk, post a "Course in Session" note.
  • Take Course Pre-test or pre-assessment for each course to pinpoint subject areas to focus
    on, and skip material you already know.
  • Use the reference materials and job aids that supplement the course.
  • Take the Mastery assessments to ensure you've learned what you need.
  • With 24X7 access, you may use e-learning at home or on the road to gain new knowledge
    and skills in areas of interest for your own personal and career growth.

Competency Maps (DRAFTS) of UA Job Families:

These maps are a "first-pass effort" at linking core competencies with SkillSoft's e-learning courses. The maps need a closer review and internal vetting before formalized usage at the University of Alaska. They are posted here for convenience, if a supervisor or employee is interested in a list of SkillSoft's e-learning courses which may be beneficial for a particular job family. Some job families could not be readily matched with SkillSoft's e-learning courses. The inclusion on the list only represents that the job family was included in SkillSoft's initial mapping process.
