Total Learning Architecture (TLA) Assessment

Enabling distributed learning modernization through rigorous assessment of the TLA.


Development of the Total Learning Architecture (TLA) includes a rigorous, independent efficiency and effectiveness assessment. This includes the draft specifications and associated reference implementation model, scoping test and demonstration events, developing and executing the research assessment plans, and reporting findings (as appropriate) in conferences, technical reports, and targeted academic journals. The project includes participation in ADL Initiative-sponsored committees and working groups, as well as other specifications and standards working groups, to illustrate current and emerging capabilities and eventual contributions to Defense operations and the ADL Initiative mission.
