Information Technology Services for Students
Blackboard is a website designed to provide 24-hour access to course materials and assignments. Many (although not all) instructors use Blackboard. Using Blackboard you can turn in homework, take quizzes and tests, communicate with your fellow students via Discussion Boards, view your grades, and much more.
Blackboard Mobile Learn (iPhone/iPad) is free and works on most smart mobile devices. Load the application onto your device and search for University of Alaska Fairbanks; login with UA Username and password.
Don’t see a course you registered for in Blackboard? See your instructor for more information.
You can access Blackboard at http://classes.uaf.edu.
Google Apps @ UA Email
Google Apps @ UA is the intuitive, easy-to-use email system used by UAF. Every new UAF student has a Google Apps email account automatically created, and is activated the first time you create your password in ELMO. Your new email account will be your UA Username followed by @alaska.edu, and will have over 7GB of storage.
The University will only send communications to your official university email account on Google Apps @ UA...so check it or forward it!
You can access Google Apps @ UA email at http://google.alaska.edu.
Network Registration (NetReg)
The NetReg site grants access to the UAFnet wireless network and the wired network in your dorm room.
Steps to register your computer:
- Click ‘Scan my Machine.’
- Select “UA - Authserv Account” as your affiliation.
- Use your UA Username and password, set in ELMO, to login.
- When the registration is complete, restart your computer.
Although UAOnline doesn’t use your UA Username and Password, you can use UAOnline to register for courses, check on financial aid, make a payment, apply for scholarships, and much more. Signing in to UAOnline requires your UA ID number, as well as a unique PIN.
