Navigator for Integrated Learning Experience (NILE)

A guided and adaptive learning experience catering to learners' goals and interests with the simplicity of Google Maps.

Description

NILE brings the ease of use and effectiveness of a "Google Maps"-like experience to learners in the Department of Defense (DoD) and beyond. NILE reduces the anxiety of learning and produces positive outcomes by shifting the responsibility of establishing personalized learning pathways from individual learners or instructors to a system that has access to data from thousands of learners and millions of learning activities. NILE can analyze these data using accepted principles from the science of learning and from data science. Since NILE is compliant with Total Learning Architecture (TLA) specifications and application programming interfaces (APIs), government users can be confident of integration with enterprise learning management systems. NILE will identify, demonstrate, and justify the critical capabilities and advantages of interoperable (TLA-based) data exchange for learning systems and will additionally provide a valuable (prototype) end-user tool to the Services' training organizations.
