    • Episode 6: Happy Thanksgiving

      Dannenberg, David; DeHass, David; Everett, Naomi (University of Alaska Anchorage, 2015-11-24)
      Happy Thanksgiving Nerds, We were joined on the show by Chef Naomi Everett, Assistant Professor in UAA’s Culinary Arts, Hospitality & Restaurant Management department. We did have a plan to talk about kitchen gadgets and useful technology cooking hacks but as always, the show went off the rails we ended up chatting about everything else. Keep those ear holes listening,
    • Episode 5: Take a hike

      Dannenberg, David; DeHass, David (University of Alaska Anchorage, 2015-11-17)
      Hello Nerds, Its time to get tear your eyes away from the screen and get outside. Nov 17 is National Take a Hike Day and in honor of day we talked about hitting the great outdoors. Turns out that both the Boss and Josh the Intern like to go out geocaching. For those not listening, geocaching is basically going on a treasure hunt using a map and GPS coordinates to find a log book hidden at certain coordinates. In the Anchorage area alone there are over than 1,400 geocaching hidden. To get started we suggest We also had Lyle, a student manager from the UAA Student Union, visit us to talk about the UAA Gear Room. UAA Faculty, staff and students are all eligible to rent equipment at VERY reasonably prices rates. With winter falling over the city, be sure to visit them to get your skates. skis or snowboard today. That’s it for today. Think I’ll go take a hike.
    • Episode 4: When the Boss is Away

      DeHass, David; Myers, Catalina (University of Alaska Anchorage, 2015-11-10)
      Hello Nerds, The Boss was away so I have no idea what happened during the show. The focus was on social media. Catalina Myers, UAA’s social media queen, was in studio to tell us about ways to connect with UAA online. Be sure to check out the HOWL, UAA’s social media hub. Keep your ear holes listening.
    • Episode 3: Gadgets and Bond

      Dannenberg, David; DeHass, David (University of Alaska Anchorage, 2015-11-03)
      Hello Nerds, Today’s show focused on James Bond and the upcoming release of SPECTRE video. We spent some time talking about cool gadgets and answered some James Bond trivia. Josh the Intern wasn’t in studio with us, as he had an audition for the “Theatre.” Though, he did call in afterwards and performed the monologue on air – to two raving reviews. But what to DeHoss and The Boss know? Tune in next weel when we talk about social media use at UAA.
    • Episode 1: And so it begins

      Dannenberg, David; University of Alaska Anchorage Academic Innovations and eLearning; DeHass, David (University of Alaska Anchorage Academic Innovations and eLearning, 2015-10-22)
      The good folks at KRUA 88.1 made the mistake of actually letting us on the air unsupervised for a real broadcast. With little preparation and an unimaginable lack of training we hit the Anchorage airways at 4pm. Without apology we had no focus or script to work from. The show went loose and fast, but we think folks enjoyed it. We had a number of callers saying how much they loved the show, and only one complaint. Well, it actually wasn’t a complaint as much as it was a request to bring the show before us back on the air. LOL. Joining the show today was Keith Berggren, UAA’s eLearning: Distance Student Services Coordinator. Keith talked about the services available to UAA’s distance students. From distance test proctoring to orientation to Blackboard tutorials the Distance Student Services office is here to help. Josh the Intern also stopped by. He enlightened us with talk about YouTube vloggers and did a little monologue from a class of his. Rumor has it that he was the best part of the show. Tune in next week and thanks for listening.
    • Stabilizing College Funding Through Development of a Centralized Robust Online Learning Environment

    • University of Alaska E-Portfolio Request for Proposal

      University of Alaska Anchorage; Wasko, Paul (University of Alaska Anchorage, 2014-06-20)
      1. Overall RFP Program Goal Procure, deploy, and maintain an electronic portfolio (e-portfolio) infrastructure for the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) in order to support institutional goals aligned with: Academic Professional/Career Personal development. The University intends to establish a portfolio culture within UAA and promote/support that culture with its education and community partners. To assist in helping to frame the work of establishing and evolving an UAA e-portfolio culture, the University has used the text Documenting Learning with ePortfolios: A Guide for College Instructors (Jossey-Bass, 2012). The text will be referenced throughout this RFP as a way to provide a more robust understanding and documentation of intended University e-portfolio goals and outcomes. For example: Highlighting a critical UAA e-portfolio program assumption is the following statement: “Because one of the signature aspects of ePortfolios is the ability of the learner to document what it is they know, understand, or are able to do, and the development of those skills and abilities, the ePortfolio tool should emphasize a learner-centered [emphases added] view of education (as opposed to a course, faculty, or institution focus) (Light, Chen, Ittelson, 2012, p. 126).” The University has engaged internally in numerous conversations around the topic of “e-portfolios” over the years. Some of these conversations were captured on a project web site, this can be accessed at: Note that any information on this site is strictly for informational purposes only and is not part of this RFP (note that the site is no longer updated and represents conversations as of May 2012). 2. Functional Requirements and Assumptions: In developing responses to the identified functional requirements, proposers should be guided by the following statement: With [insert offerors name/tool] a [insert area of focus – see below] can accomplish the following in support of their academic, professional, and/or personal goal. The functional requirements will scaffold in the following manner: students/learners take courses from/work with faculty/staff who teach/work in a particular program/office which is part of the institution (university). In developing functional specifications for institutional and program portfolios it is assumed that student/learner functionality will be available to be re-purposed. For example: In developing a program e-portfolio to support CAEP accreditation, staff will be able to upload files, edit text, control page layout, etc. These are all specifications that are identified in the “Student/learner functionality” evaluation section. Student/learner may use the same portfolio (or collection of sub-portfolios) during their entire degree path through multiple courses or projects beyond courses, to document their development. It is a reasonable use case that a UAA student may start their UAA e-portfolio while in high school, use their e-portfolio during their UAA tenure, and continue to use their e-portfolio as a UAA alumnus.
