Center for Educational Design, Development, and Distribution (CED3)

CED3 website: www.nps.edu/Academics/DL/

Center for Educational Design, Development, and Distribution (CED3) aspires to become the nation's leading center for educational design, development, and distribution of graduate level educational products and is committed to ongoing excellence in its services.

CED3 uses its expertise in instructional design, media development/production, marketing/communications, student services and administrative services to support resident and non-resident instructional programs. Through collaboration with NPS schools, departments, and faculty, CED3 helps NPS use new and existing technologies to extend graduate level education to the total force.

Five operational teams support two functional areas- Course Development and Course Delivery. These five operational teams are:

Air Force Institute of Technology—Distance Learning

The Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT), located at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio, is the Air Force's graduate school of engineering and management as well as its institution for technical professional continuing education. AFIT is developing distance learning programs for government students who cannot enroll in one of AFIT's resident programs. Detailed information about AFIT's nonresident programs can be found at www.afit.edu/en/dl/

The Naval Postgraduate School maintains a Strategic Alliance with the Air Force Institute of Technology. A memorandum of agreement between the Secretary of the Navy and the Secretary of the Air Force forms this alliance to ensure the two institutions continuously work together to meet the educational needs of the Armed Forces of the United States. NPS and AFIT will continue to reflect the heritage and character of their respective services, meeting Joint and service-unique needs, minimizing unnecessary redundancy, maintaining quality and realizing efficiencies and economies of scale.
