As a part of DoDEA’s commitment to expand professional development opportunities for employees, we have recently procured on-demand e-learning content for all permanent DoDEA employees.
This online learning platform provides a place to gain essential skills you’ll use during and after your time at DoDEA. Whether you want to improve your skills in Microsoft Office, planning, or conflict resolution, Skillsoft provides opportunities to learn, discover and achieve.
In keeping with our new environment where almost everything is available on demand, DoDEA Skillport offers employees access to knowledge when they need it, not at some pre-appointed date that may or may not be convenient or help in the completion of current tasks. Skillport makes the shift from “taking training” to “seeking knowledge and information.” This new approach in learning and development, coined “Learning in the flow of work,” has a positive impact on employee experience and engagement. DoDEA Skillport is a tool and a resource available to all permanent employees.
The Skillsoft content library, which includes thousands of videos and e-books on a variety of topics, is hosted on our DoDEA Skillport site.
All permanent DoDEA employees will be sent a user ID for the DoDEA Skillport website. A personalized welcome email will be sent to each permanent employee; this email will provide the username and initial password. Users will need to change their password when first logging in to the DoDEA Skillport website.
Gaining access to DoDEA Skillport
To access your new DoDEA Skillport account, you will need to login to https://dodea.skillport.com using your username and password sent to you in your welcome email.
Your Skillport username was established using your 10-digit DoD identification number that can be found on the back of your Common Access Card (CAC).
Since the DoDEA Skillport website is in the “cloud”, it can be accessed from a variety of web-enabled devices. Users may access the website from a web browser, at work or at home, or on a government-issued or personal tablet or smart phone using native apps available in the Apple and Google app stores.
All permanent DoDEA employees will, in the next several days, receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org with their log-in credentials. Please keep an eye out for this email. If for some reason you do not receive the email, you can still reset your password by entering your Skillport username (your DoD ID number) and clicking the Forgot Password link on the https://dodea.skillport.com login page.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact Peter Stinson at email@example.com.
