The Army Learning Model ALM sets forward an agenda for innovation in Army training where instructor-centered training is replaced by learner centered training TRADOC, 2011. Rather than limiting training to specific timeframes and locations, the ALM calls for a training system that can be accessed at the point of need and one, ... that extends knowledge to Soldiers at the operational edge, is capable of updating learning content rapidly, and is responsive to Operational Army needs TRADOC, 20 II, p. 16. Furthermore, it calls for training to be tailored to the needs of the learner in order to maximize training efficiency and effectiveness. A key element of this vision is the use of distributed learning technologies including mobile, virtual, and game-based training platforms to support learning at the point of need. Another critical piece is the integration of assessments within these technologies to ensure learning has occurred to a standard and training is tailored to the learners level of experience and competence.
