The University of Alaska has entered a three-year contract renewal with SkillSoft, Corp. for UA Employee E-Learning, following approval by the Business Council. The contract, supported by all of the major administrative units (MAUs), is now extended until January 30, 2015.
An upgrade of the UA SkillPort learning management system in June 2011 provides enhanced features for end users. Although users will see a different layout, the many SkillSoft online resources and the log-in process to access the resources have not changed. Employees will still log-in through UAOnline or through a campus webpage using their UA credentials (UA username and password). University employees who are familiar with the existing SkillPort system have commented favorably that the new site is easy to use.
