JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) --

Air Education and Training Command’s “myLearning” system is entering phase two of its rollout, adding new features scheduled to be available to Airmen and Guardians early this summer.

The Air Force’s 21st Century learning system is part of the service’s focus on deliberate development of the Total Force.

“Our Airmen and Guardians, both enlisted and officers, deserve systems that enable their deliberate development,” said Chief Master Sgt. Erik Thompson, AETC command chief. “The myLearning platform advances force development by meeting our personnel where they are. It’s a command priority to refine or replace the outdated systems that support our personnel, which is what we’ve done and continue to do with the myLearning platform.”

The new courses will include those previously hosted on Enterprise Blended Learning Service, commonly known in the force as Blackboard. The EBLS course migration helps align the myLearning service with its original goal of a centralized learning management system for all U.S. Space Force and U.S. Air Force online learning courses, linking training for Airmen and Guardians across different specialty codes, locations and more.

“We’re pleased with both the performance of and the force’s embrace of myLearning during the initial rollout,” said Floyd A. McKinney, AETC chief of learning services. “The framework we’ve built provides the critical IT capability to operationalize force development. We want to continue to refine myLearning and completing phase two of implementation by adding EBLS courses helps us achieve our vision of ‘one-stop shopping’ for online learning.”

Course owners who previously hosted their classes on EBLS will be trained and given site access to build their new courses in myLearning. User training begins this month, and course personnel can expect to have access and begin migrating their courses in June.

Additionally, the AETC Learning Services Division has added features to improve the overall accessibility and functionality of myLearning.

“Learning Locker is going to store learning data and can serve as a source of record for organizations,” said Bill Muse, AETC Learning Services program manager. “Intelliboard is our reporting and analytics tool, and BigBlueButton is a conferencing system that will allow for virtual classrooms with audio, video, slide presentation, and a chat functionality within the myLearning system.”

According to Muse, these new features should be fully operational on the site by mid-August.

myLearning debuted as a modern and interactive solution in March and replaced training modules previously found on the Advanced Distributed Learning Service. Since its launch, more than 300,000 Airmen and Guardians have accessed the site and completed around 361,000 courses. Additionally, myLearning has successfully migrated to CloudOne, allowing for increased functionality in cloud computing when accessing courses.

“The goal of myLearning is to embrace innovation and technology across our force,” said Adam Rasmussen, AETC deputy of learning services. “(Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. CQ Brown, Jr.) has charged all of us to accelerate change or lose, and myLearning is meeting that challenge, delivering innovative learning management capabilities like ‘Learn-from-Anywhere,’ digital badging, and competencies frameworks that will enable the identification of the right Airmen, for the right job, at the right time.”

AETC will continue to announce updates and additional features to myLearning over the next year. So far, the system has been successfully accessed and used in over 1000 locations around the globe.

If you are experiencing technical difficulties with the site or have feedback for the development team, submit a ticket to the myLearning Service Desk by clicking the 'NEED HELP?' button. Users are asked to exercise patience as the myLearning Help Desk is working trouble tickets as quickly as possible. Please do not submit another ticket for the same issue as that further delays the system's ability to respond quickly.
