Over the past 10 years, bring your own device has become an emerging practice across the commercial landscape and has empowered employees to conduct work-related business from the comfort of their own phone, tablet, or other personal electronic device. Currently in the Department of Defense, and specifically the Department of the Navy, no viable solution exists for the delivery of eLearning content to a service member's personal device that satisfy existing policies. The purpose of this thesis is to explore two potential solutions: a server-based method and a server-less method, both of which would allow Marines and Sailors to access eLearning course material by way of their personal devices. This thesis will test the feasibility and functionality of our server-based and server-less solutions by implementing a basic proof of concept for each. The intent is to provide a baseline from which further research and development can be conducted, and to demonstrate how these solutions present a low-risk environment that preserves government network security while still serving as a professional military education force multiplier. Both solutions, while demonstrated with limited prototypes, have the potential to finally introduce bring your own device into the Department of the Navy's eLearning realm.
