Making online learning easier.

DAU's student population continues to grow with over 300,000 certificate completions by July 2005. To better support users in the AT & L workforce, DAU is consolidating and simplifying sites. The effort began in April 2005 with the consolidation of the Continuous Learning System with the Virtual Campus Learning System.

In August 2005, DAU completed the second phase of improvements by physically moving its hosting site for online courses and continuous learning modules from an external government center on the Internet to the NIPRNET at DAU, Ft. Belvoir, Va., and changing the URL (see below). The transition resulted in a 400 percent increase in capacity and a 30 percent improvement in system performance. These improvements will provide better and more consistent connectivity for the AT & L workforce. During high-security situations, if the NIPRNET is blocked from Internet access, the majority of the workforce is within the NIPRNET and will still have access. A second, smaller site at an alternate DAU campus is planned to provide both redundancy and connectivity for users who may not be able to gain access from the NIPRNET.

DAU has also simplified the student enrollment processes and consolidated and better organized online resources and classroom course materials to give students one-stop shopping.
