Throughout 2016, in fulfillment of curriculum development responsibilities , APUS full-time faculty have been diligently revising courses in their respective academic disciplines. A tremendous amount of work has been completed, with particular focus on improving and updating the content found in course lessons. As of September 30, nearly 90 of the revised APUS courses have been further enhanced and refined via our Academic Instructional Technology (AIT) team’s so-called “ELF” (e-Learning Framework) process. These enhancements include adding appropriate digital imagery, media, video, infographics and knowledge checks in an effort to create a more interactive, immersive and engaging experience for students.
