Learning Asset Manager
ASU will design and build a Learning Asset Manager (LAM), the technical infrastructure that makes the sharing of digital content and materials throughout an enterprise and across institutions more manageable and user-friendly.
Advancement of the LAM will accelerate development of a stackable credential system, a digitized, modular credentialing framework that offers badges, certificates and other credentials. The wider selection of credentials allows learners to more easily adjust their course selection, first at ASU and eventually other institutions, to reflect individualized aptitudes and interests. The LAM serves as the technological foundation of a stackable credential system that empowers learners to personalize their experiences and represent mastery of knowledge and skills that are relevant to their chosen career paths.
The LAM will eliminate administrative and technical barriers for institutions to share, repurpose and integrate courses and content. The system will encourage more collaboration on content production at the institutional and faculty levels in higher education while facilitating a seamless experience for learners who seek the wider selection of courses multiple institutions have to offer.
