Elearning! Media Group, the U.S. trade magazine publisher of Elearning! and Government Elearning! magazines announced their media partnership with the Federal Government Distance Learning Association’s (www.FGDLA.us) Government Learning Technology Symposium (GLTS) in 2016. FGDLA is co-locating GLTS with Government Video EXPO. Registration to GLTS is free to federal government employees, contractors and professionals in the industry.
“It has been a few years since our last GLTS and the time is right for us to return to the marketplace. Distance learning, in all its forms, is a thriving and innovative industry. The FGDLA is committed to delivering its federal government members access to a conference meeting their educational needs,” reports Alex Autry, President, FGDLA.
The 2016 GLTS will be held at the Washington D.C. Convention Center, Dec. 7-8, 2016. It is co-located with The GV EXPO, the East Coast’s largest technology event designed for video, broadcast and AV professionals. The GLTS includes two days of consecutive sessions featuring presentations on instructional design basics, 508 compliance, gaming, mobile learning, video and multimedia design for distance learning, cognitive science/learning theories, LMS integration, and much more. The FGDLA is also hosting its annual awards recognizing Federal Government agencies/ organizations excellence in distance learning.

In 1998, a group of Federal Agency representatives held the GLTS at Gallaudet University’s Kellogg Center, Washington, D.C. Those representatives worked for agencies including Centers for Disease Control (CDC), The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the US Air Force, and the Departments of Agriculture (USDA), Energy (DOE), and Veterans Affairs (VA). The Symposium was planned by representatives of the supporting Federal Government agencies, and conference logistics were coordinated by the Graduate School, USDA. Their purpose was to create a venue in the Washington D.C. metro area to network and share best practices concerning distance learning in the Federal Government.
The two-day symposium featured 36 presentations and was attended by over 250 people from 35 different federal agencies. The Symposium published proceedings and made attendee lists available to all federal government participants. The Symposium was a grass-roots effort rather than an officially sponsored Federal Government event. Due to the lack of sponsorship and financial resources, the last GLTS Symposium was held in 2001.
