National Training and Education Resource (NTER) Platform

The SEED Center wants to help its members best utilize a new free open source clean tech learning technology tool developed by the U.S. Department of Energy. The National Training and Education Resource (NTER) was designed to revolutionize how online training and education is created, shared, and delivered. NTER offers an easy to use and free distributed repository and specialized search engine just for education and training. SEED would like to help you in determining the best way to integrate this platform into the creation and management of your green-skilled education programs.

Each organization that participates in NTER gains access to a global network of resources and expands the learning community. Along with enabling collaboration, NTER allows authors to reuse existing content which further reduces the cost to institutions developing new materials. Together, these features enable instructors to share, reuse and remix existing works so that students can benefit from rich and immersive educational experiences.

Contact us today to discuss how NTER can best serve you in the delivery of high quality green training programs. Also view the webcast recording of the DOE Webinar on NTER from 12/6/12 or download the slides here.
