Total Learning Architecture: Moving Into the Future

2018; IITSEC; Smith; Gallagher; Schatz; Vogel-Walcutt

Increasingly, the defense community requires a continuous, adaptive learning enterprise that delivers the right training, education, and just-in-time support, in the right ways and at the right time. The Total Learning Architecture (TLA), now in its second iteration of development, is intended to help meet that vision. The TLA is a set of internet and software specifications being developed to create the interoperability backbone of this future learning ecosystem. The products derived from this project include technical implementation guidelines, Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), middleware, and data model descriptions that help training, education, and personnel management technologies seamlessly communicate through integrated coherent systems.
