Military / Government: Sharable Learning
Sponsored & Hosted by: Elluminate, Inc. (
Training and educating the U.S. military is an enormous enterprise. In excess of $20 billion is spent to train and educate service members each year, involving the delivery of thousands of courses for hundreds of specialized occupational areas. In addition, other governmental organizations are dealing with how to bridge that gap in a technology driven ever increasing globalize economy. The workforce for the 21st century must be prepared for the new landscape of workforce development. Specific areas of interest may focus on learning management systems, human capital solutions, performance initiatives, innovative delivery methods for content in multiple modes, transformation of training, Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM), and interagency and multinational collaboration.
