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 (PBS) and the United States Department of Labor (DOL) have formed an articulated partnership to develop 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. (Author/AEF)
