Abstract
The transformative Ready Relevant Learning (RRL) effort is transitioning the Navy to a modern, science-of-learning approach. That includes delivering novel training practices and content to the point of need, requiring a true "anytime, anywhere" capability (wireless access) for locations around the world and in CONUS learning centers and schoolhouses. To deliver modern training capability anytime and anywhere, the Navy must be able to support mobile and distributed training. This requires that Sailors have access to both hardware and software that allow them to access training resources outside the classrooms, at the point of need whenever they require it. The study will examine ways to provide Sailors ready access to mobile learning technologies for the delivery of modern training content anytime and anywhere. We will conduct a Business Case Analysis for procuring government-issued devices versus relaxation of policies and determine the cybersecurity safeguards that would allow personal device use. The goal of the study is to identify the best value solution in a form of an effective technology ecosystem with respect to the categories of hardware (laptop, tablet, mobile phone, etc.) and present a roadmap describing how to implement and adopt the best value solution.
