Title of talk: The Training and Learning Architecture: Infrastructure for the Future of Learning
Abstract: Realizing future visions of learning requires a shared platform that serves the needs of learners. The Training and Learning Architecture (TLA) is intended to be a shared platform for learning technology that spurs innovation and promotes interoperability. The TLA is a collection of community-created Web services and open source software components to securely manage and provide interfaces to learning data, while protecting privacy. Scenarios that envision a
GPS-like capability for learning across many different, but coordinated applications, content, and devices demonstrate the role of the shared platform. The current state of each TLA component is discussed with an analysis of the Experience API and its role in game-based learning technologies.
