The vision of this government-wide initiative
is the creation of a premier e-Training environment that supports
the development of the Federal workforce and advances the accomplishment
of agency missions through simplified and one-stop access to e-Training
products and services. E-Training is working to enhance the
ability of the Federal government to attract, retain, manage, and
continuously educate the highly skilled professionals needed for
a flexible and high-performing government workforce.
In addition, the e-Training Initiative benefits the government
and the Federal workforce by:
- Reducing redundancies and achieving economies of scale in the
purchase and/or development of e-learning content and in purchase
of learning technology infrastructure (e.g., Learning Management
Systems (L M S), Learning Content Management Systems (L C M S)
and/or other Information Technology (I T) hardware/software),
consolidation, and/or sharing of hardware/software wherever possible;
- Offering user-friendly, one-stop access to a robust and high-quality
e-Training environment; and
- Encouraging e-Learning investments as part of a strategic,
systematic, and continuous development of Federal government human
