$5M for digital learning – Initial focus on workers

California State University at San Bernardino aims to become a leader in using the Web, wireless networks and digital television broadcasting to help people teach and learn.

Thanks to a $5 million grant, the school will create the National Center for Excellence in Distance Learning, which will provide the U.S. Navy with distance education.

The initially will focus on employment-related training for civilian employees of the Information Technology Center, which is affiliated with the Navy and based at the University of New Orleans.

Cal State and Navy officials hope to expand the program to other branches of the military and ultimately make it available to schools and businesses throughout the U.S. and abroad.
