Resources for Students
Are you ready for e-learning? Online courses are generally more difficult than people think they will be. The Smarter Measure asks questions about your life factors, personal attributes, learning styles, reading skills, technical knowledge and competency and typing skills and rates you on your readiness for e-learning courses.
UAA offers free access to Microsoft Office and other software to students. The Premiere Accessibility Suite is a valuable bundle of adaptive software that includes an e-Text Reader and a PDF Equalizer that are useful for converting e-books and documents to audio.
Many students wonder what career would be right for them and there are many criteria to consider when setting a career goal. You can use the Alaska Career Information System (AKCIS) to take self-assessments that connect the answers about your abilities, interests and values to occupations. AKCIS also provides information about the training and education needed for any job in the database. The Alaska Department of Labor can help you learn more about careers in the state, including occupational outlook and wage ranges.
