Adding a Training Facility

Users with the Course Manager role may add and manage training facilities in LearnAlaska. Since users with domain-specific roles can't search for training facilities that have been loaded in other domains than their own, we require that you first contact a LearnAlaska Enterprise Administrator with your request. We will search the system for any matching training facilities and reply back with whether or not it is necessary to add the training facility to your domain. If it is necessary to add the training facility we will also include the recommended title using our defined naming standards.

Centrally Controlled Content Options

To review available Content Options currently configured in LearnAlaska, to request new items, or to request changes to current items please use the workbooks posted below. These options are centrally administered from the Core Domain since they are Enterprise-wide, please contact an Enterprise Administrator to request additions or updates.

Email Triggers

System emails may be copied and customized by domain. A reference document of email triggers and how they have been modified for LearnAlaska is available here.

Job Aids for Adding Course and Content Items

Job Aids are helpful references that combine some of the content from the Meridian training modules, the Statewide Standards and Governance document, and the LearnAlaska Team's helpful hints that we have learned from adding courses and content to the LMS. Additional Job Aids are being drafted and will be posted shortly to this page.

Meridian Training Materials & Manuals

Meridian training materials and manuals are available in LearnAlaska. Search for "Meridian" in the site-wide search to find these files. Permissions are set to restrict access to most of these files so that only Super Users may view them.
