The Learning Skills Lab is one of several labs that provide UAA students access to open use computers. One-on-one assistance with Windows, Mac, Microsoft, and Adobe programs helps students gain a better understanding of programs by walking through each questions in the lab. Help is also offered with logging in and navigating UAA resources (Blackboard, webmail, UAonline, Degree Works) printing and answering questions about other commonly used software programs.
Computers- The Learning Skills Lab has 2 Mac and 12 Windows workstations, one of which is setup through Disability Support Services (DSS) to benefit students in need of additional assistance. All of the stations are accessible to all UAA students using their login and password and each is loaded with common software applications used for word processing, spreadsheets, publishing and presentations such as Microsoft Office and the Adobe Suite. Additional supplemental programs (Accuplacer, Course Compass, Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary and other related software) are also accessible.
