AGENCY: The Department of Energy (DOE) today gives notice to inform any interested parties that: • DOE will no longer provide financial support for development and web hosting of the National Training and Education Resource (NTER)®. • DOE is releasing stewardship of the learning management system (LMS) and content management system (CMS) of SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 76461 NTER® to the open source community, consistent with the original development strategy. • Parties interested in the LMS and the CMS should follow the guidance in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION Section below.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s mission is to ensure America’s security and prosperity by addressing its energy, environmental, and nuclear challenges through transformative science and technology solutions. DOE developed the National Training and Education Resource (NTER)® to provide an open source platform for multimedia selfpaced training courses designed to build skills in clean energy vocations at lower costs than proprietary packages. NTER® primarily consists of a learning management system (LMS) and a content management system (CMS) that streamlines the delivery of training and content to stakeholders. The LMS and the CMS were designed to leverage open source code and open data, enabling educators to create content and students to take courses easily. These systems have offered DOE and other organizations a unified platform to provide state-of-the-art training. NTER® users have earned certifications and demonstrated competencies that translate directly into on-the-job performance. The highly modular design has allowed NTER® to be used as a stand-alone open-source toolkit or to be combined with proprietary thirdparty materials. Over the last several years, the open source community has demonstrated the ability to assume stewardship and development of the LMS and the CMS of NTER® to maximize the use and market adoption of these educational tools. Multiple organizations, with expertise in open source development of educational content, have incorporated and adapted the NTER® elements and are offering services based on it. DOE believes that these organizations and the open source community are most E:\FR\FM\09DEN1.SGM 09DEN1
