The Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Vision and Getting From Here To There

2005; Fletcher, J.D.

The Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) initiative was undertaken by the Department of Defense (DoD) at the request of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) and in cooperation with the other Federal Agencies. Its goal is to make education, training, and performance aiding accessible anytime and anywhere. This goal is being pursued through intense and frequent interactions among industry, government, and academic participants. ADL specifications are now being adopted across Europe, Asia, the Pacific Rim, and the Americas.
