IRM College is as good as gold
The National Defense University's IRM College has received the AFCEA Golden Link Award for solving interoperability problems with its online education programs.
The Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association gives the awards to innovative and effective technology solutions in the federal government.
Becky Nolan, AFCEA International's executive vice president, said in a statement that the IRM College and Blackboard Inc. of Washington solved serious compatibility problems between commercial e-learning software and new Defense Department standards.
One of the standards is the Shared Content Object Reference Model, for which the college and Blackboard developed a SCORM 1.2-compliant system.
