PBS Develops Institution-Neutral Online Services for Non-Traditional Adult Learners
Friday, January 1, 1999
As the IMS interoperability standards roll closer to widespread usability, the Public Broadcasting Service and the U.S. Department of Labor has formed an articulated partnership to development a Web-based project. This interactive project places institution-neutral student services for non-traditional, distance learners on the Web. With seven areas of services, users can seek out educational materials and customize a learning agenda to lead them into a chosen career path or occupational field. PBS and DOL are collaborating on a career management account to help users hold their electronic information and learning agenda in a lifelong learning portfolio.
