What is the ADL Initiative?
The Department of Defense established the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative to support the development and adoption of a data-driven DoD-wide digital learning ecosystem. The technologies, standards, and policies that form the foundation of this ecosystem are now being demonstrated by multiple DoD stakeholders. The ADL Initiative’s development of this ecosystem, including the Total Learning Architecture (TLA) that will permit interoperability among existing DoD education and training systems, has been a principal focus of iFEST.
