AXIS (Adult Education Express Intercommunication Support) Final Report, 1999-2000.
The project AXIS: Adult education eXpress Intercommunication Support was designed to provide systematic communication and coordination between Pennsylvania's Bureau of Adult Basic and Literacy Education and professional service providers and adult basic and literacy education (ABLE) providers, including support for online and World Wide Web communications. The following were among the main project outcomes: (1) the bureau's Web site was redesigned, improved, expanded, maintained, and publicized; (2) a 1999-2000 edition of "The ABLE Provider Directory," a comprehensive listing of all programs and services funded by the bureau, was produced; (3) a 2000 edition of "The Pennsylvania ABLE Administrators Handbook" was edited and produced; (4) the statewide newsletters "What's the Buzz?" and "Focus Bulletin" were centrally produced; (5) technical assistance was provided for professional development activities, including print publications of Pennsylvania's six Professional Development Centers and publishing modules developed by the Training Development Project; and (6) other internal and external publications were published as needed by the bureau and bureau-funded programs and projects. Although AXIS is a "one-person" shop requiring a wide range of communication skills, it has demonstrated that a statewide ABLE communications hub serves a valuable function. AXIS has continued to reach its target audience in steadily increasing numbers. (MN)
