For education and training support to Department of Defense (DoD) Joint Services, the Office of the Vice Provost for Digital Education (VPDE) uses the Joint Knowledge Online (JKO) website for military and civilian individual and staff online training. It is the Joint Staff system of record for Joint Staff annual training requirements. VPDE delivers asynchronous Distributed Learning (DL) instruction whenever such instruction is used by more than one Service; Army DL with a Joint or Multinational nature is often hosted here.
LEVERAGING JOINT ASSETS SUCH AS JKO AND OTHER SERVICES’ CAPABILITIES
Joint Training and Education within the Office of the Vice Provost for Digital Education (VPDE), Army University, provides technical advice and policy guidance on the development of mid to long range Joint training plans and future Joint training and education, collaborates with the Department of Defense Advance Distributed Learning initiative (ADLi) regarding DL strategies and technology advancements, while leveraging Joint assets such as Joint Knowledge Online (JKO) and other Services’ content and capabilities. VPDE assists in the integration of Joint DL capabilities; leverages Joint DL courseware and content for Soldiers access and training; and partners with JKO and other Services to improve Joint and Army DL training and education in order to reduce redundancy of content, save time and costs to meet Army training and education requirements. Content that is applicable to other services or interagency partners should be considered by proponents and Centers of Excellence (COE) for publishing and hosting on JKO. In addition, proponents and COE’s should leverage existing training available on JKO or other Services where applicable to effect cost savings and rapid content availability.
ARMY LEARNING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (ALMS)
The Army Learning Management System (ALMS) is a Web-based information system that delivers training to Soldiers, manages training information, provides training collaboration, scheduling, and career planning capabilities in both resident and non-resident training environments. Additionally, the ALMS assists Army trainers and training managers in conducting and managing the training of Soldiers and DA civilians throughout their Army careers. In addition to the training at DTFs, Army personnel can access training from anywhere they have access to a computer and the Internet with the development of the new ALMS, which is currently being fielded at TRADOC installations world-wide.

THE JOINT SERVICES TRANSCRIPT
The Joint Services Transcript (JST) provides a description of military schooling and work history in civilian language. It serves as a counseling tool for academic and career counselors in advising service members and veterans. It serves as an aid in preparing resumes and explaining Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, National Guard and Navy work experience to civilian employers. It also saves time and money by awarding academic credits, which means less tuition to pay and less time spent in the classroom. The JST is accepted by more than 2,300 colleges and universities.
