PBS Develops Institution-Neutral Online Services for Non-Traditional Adult Learners
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.
