We will deliver world-class training and education via a Marine Corps Learning Network enabling Marines to learn via the appropriate media, when and where learning is most needed. The learning experience will be part of a Marine's career long learning continuum that supports the operational readiness of the Total Force and prepares Marines to meet the challenges of tomorrow.

—Steven M. Jones, LtCol USMC (ret),
United States Marine Corps DL Center (DLC)

To help the U. S. Marine Corps meet new challenges in instructional and information technologies with increased flexibility, the Marine Corps Combat Development Command's (MCCDC) Training and Education Command (TECOM) developed the Training and Education Modernization Initiative (TEMI). The objective of this initiative is to maximize the Corps' limited training and education resources by restructuring current institutional training, improving our training design/development and training management processes, introducing technology into classrooms, and capitalizing on modern distance learning (DL) technologies. Professional military education (PME) programs will also benefit from this initiative as current distance education courses are enhanced through the application of advanced/emerging information technologies.
BACKGROUND
Reviews of our training and education processes several years ago revealed problem areas that significantly impact operational readiness.
Student loads frequently exceed formal school seat capacity resulting in large pools of Marines awaiting training (MAT).
