LearnAlaska now accessible to ALL State employees 03/27/2014

LearnAlaska, the State’s Learning Management System, has, until recently, been available only to State employees who have access to the State network (Intranet). This meant that employees working in off-site locations, in outlying areas, or outside agencies could not access LearnAlaska. This application is now available to all SOA employees regardless of location via a secure Internet connection. To login, State of Alaska employees may use their SOA User ID, usually your first and middle initials and your last name, and password. These will be same credentials used to login to other State applications such as the Employee Documents Online (Online Paystub) application.

What is LearnAlaska?

LearnAlaska is an on-line learning management system (LMS) the State is implementing to train employees and to track workforce training efforts. It is a component of IRIS, the statewide effort to implement an integrated accounting, financial, payroll, human resources, and procurement solution.

Why is the State implementing LearnAlaska?

The State of Alaska is implementing LearnAlaska to meet the training demands of the IRIS effort and to address limitations and usability issues with the State’s current training applications.

What do I need to know?

For the initial phase of implementation, classes offered through the Department of Administration's Division of Personnel and Labor Relations (DOP) and Finance (DOF) will be administered through LearnAlaska. If you are enrolled in a course offered by the DOP, DOF no action is required; just be aware that the course will now be administered by LearnAlaska.
