The NTIS website and supporting ordering systems are undergoing a major upgrade from 8PM on September 25th through approximately October 6. During that time, much of the functionality, including subscription and product ordering, shipping, etc., will not be available. You may call NTIS at 1-800-553-6847 or (703) 605-6000 to place an order but you should expect delayed shipment. Please do NOT include credit card numbers in any email you might send NTIS.
Documents in the NTIS Technical Reports collection are the results of federally funded research. They are directly submitted to or collected by NTIS from Federal agencies for permanent accessibility to industry, academia and the public.  Before purchasing from NTIS, you may want to check for free access from (1) the issuing organization's website; (2) the U.S. Government Printing Office's Federal Digital System website http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys; (3) the federal government Internet portal USA.gov; or (4) a web search conducted using a commercial search engine such as http://www.google.com.

Section 508 Compliant e-Learning

CourseAvenue is the recognized leader and offers the most advanced software and services available to develop, convert, and remediate e-Learning courses that comply with the requirements of Section 508. Driven by over 21 years of experience and embracing the most innovative practices in e-Learning, CourseAvenue provides software and services to some of the world's leading Fortune 500 companies, Middle Market businesses, non-profit organizations, and a variety of US Government agencies.

CourseAvenue owns three software applications that it licenses to its clients to create e-Learning courses (CourseAvenue Studio©), to serve as an LMS (CourseAvenue Deliver©), and to analyze assessment data to improve existing e-Learning courses (CourseAvenue Analyze©). CourseAvenue Studio is the only commercially available e-Learning course development software that allows users to automatically create e-Learning courses that meet the accessibility and usability requirements of Section 508 without the need to create separate versions of the course – one for individuals using assistive technologies and a second for everyone else – and without the course developer having to engage in extensive revisions or possess advanced computer programming skills. CourseAvenue has built Section 508 compliance into our e-Learning course authoring software. What this means is that an e-Learning course developed with CourseAvenue Studio will automatically be both accessible and usable within the meaning of Section 508.

CourseAvenue can also assist your organization in converting existing courses or educational content into Section 508 compliant e-Learning. CourseAvenue’s team of learning professionals includes software developers, instructional designers, multi-media developers, project managers, learning / performance consultants, and a dedicated, in-house customer support team.

What we do:

NTIS has supplied high-volume e-Learning infrastructure and content to federal agencies since 1998. NTIS provides all services associated with the setup and operation of partner's LMS in hosted and self-hosted environments.
