Advanced Distributed Learning - About ADL

Advanced Distributed Learning - About ADL:

"The Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative, sponsored by the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), is a collaborative effort between government, industry and academia to establish a new distributed learning environment that permits the interoperability of learning tools and course content on a global scale. ADL's vision is to provide access to the highest quality education and training, tailored to individual needs, delivered cost-effectively anywhere and anytime.

By working with industry and academia, the Department of Defense (DoD) is promoting collaboration in the development and adoption of tools, specifications, guidelines, policies and prototypes that meet these functional requirements:

* Accessible from multiple remote locations through the use of meta-data and packaging standards
* Adaptable by tailoring instruction to the individual and organizational needs
* Affordable by increasing learning efficiency and productivity while reducing time and costs
* Durable across revisions of operating systems and software
* Interoperable across multiple tools and platforms
* Reusable through the design, management and distribution of tools and learning content across multiple applications."
