Department of Defense Strategic Plan for Advanced Distributed Learning

1999; ODUSD(R), Readiness and Training

Section 378 of Public Law 105-261, the Strom Thurmond National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1999 (hereafter, The Act), requires the Secretary of Defense to develop a strategic plan for guiding and expanding distance learning initiatives within the Department of Defense, to include a provision for the expansion of such initiatives over five consecutive years, beginning in FY 2000 (Appendix A). Section 378 states that the Secretary may take into account the ongoing collaborative effort, between the Department of Defense, other Federal agencies, and private industry, that is known as the Advanced Distribut[ed] Learning Initiative, but that the strategic plan must specifically focus on the education and training goals and objectives of the Department of Defense.
