To improve Army Readiness by providing rigorous, relevant, and tailored distributed training and education to Soldiers, leaders, and Army civilians anytime, anywhere from a responsive and accessible delivery capability.
Today’s Soldiers, leaders and Army civilians find themselves in situations that are far more uncertain, complex and dangerous than ever before. Their ability to survive and to win America’s wars is increasingly dependent on an active, dedicated community of educators and training professionals providing effective, modern instructional models that are user-friendly, pliant and adaptable via distributed learning to changing mission requirements.
WHAT IS DISTRIBUTED LEARNING?
Distributed Learning (DL) is a modern, proven Instructional model used by the Army to deliver Individual, collective, self-development training and education to Soldiers, leaders and Army civilians anytime/anywhere. Instructors can be blended into the learning or content can be delivered and stand-alone products.
The Army Distributed Learning Program (TADLP), leads the way in creating and utilizing such models to leverage the latest emerging technologies to distribute learning across an array of portable devices depending on the need of the individual user.
THE TADLP TIMELINE
Established by the Chief of Staff of the Army in 1996, the Commanding General of Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) was appointed the Executive Agent for TADLP. The TRADOC Capability Manager (TCM) was chartered by the CG TRADOC as the full-line authority for the centralized management and integration of the organization. In 2010 the TRADOC Commanding General revised the charter for the TCM and assigned all TADLP responsibilities to the Combined Arms Center (CAC), Army Training Support Center (ATSC).
Today’s Army Distributed Learning Program is a vital arm of the Combined Arms Center, and is located at Fort Eustis, Virginia.
