Enterprise Content Development Capability (ECDC)

The Enterprise Content Development Capability (ECDC) is an Army SCORM conformant authoring tool for the development of distributing learning content/courseware. ECDC is intuitive and easy to learn; has a shared repository to store all courseware, assets and templates for future re-use (significant cost and time savings); is collaborative to support multiple users and roles working on the same training content; provides version control, and; is standards based (SCORM and 508). Furthermore, an Event Manager provides higher levels of IMI interactions.The addition of an Assessment capability allows quiz components to communicate user captured scores to the Army Learning Management System (ALMS).

ECDC has a Certificate of Networthiness (CoN), resides on the .mil and is accessed by proponents through Army Knowledge Online (AKO) single sign-on. With ECDC, Instructional Designers, Graphics Artists, SMEs and other training development personnel work collaboratively on the training packages which expedites the development time, getting the latest and greatest training to the learner, faster. This also provides the Government a significant cost savings over the lifecycle of the training package from initial development, through updated revisions, until the final release.

An Introduction to ECDC video is available on the TADLP Facebook page. The video provides an overview of the features and capabilities of ECDC.
