In June 2013, Instructional Designers (IDs) from all three MAUs met together for the first time in many years. During this meeting we discussed system-wide challenges, needs and solutions. We also talked about the value of a community space for faculty and staff. The Title III ID team returned excited about the prospect of piloting a WordPress site to facilitate this community space. The learningspaces.alaska.edu idea was born. Both UAA and UAF provided support as we proposed to launch Learning Spaces. Thank you. Additionally, UAF has assisted in the launch, set-up, and training for our new site. We thank the UAF team for their support and assistance in our pilot. It’s wonderful to know that they have our back!
