In this case study, read about how the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment uses powerful Web tools from Adobe to enhance its online portal, e-Colorado.org.
For nearly a decade, the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment (CDLE) has led the planning, design, and implementation of an online knowledge center of workforce development learning resources through a single, comprehensive, electronic interface. Developed in partnership with other key state workforce development stakeholders, priorities for the electronic portal included e-Learning, networking, cataloguing resources/funding and integrated forms.
The e-Colorado.org knowledge management portal emerged in 2004 as a collaborative effort among the Education, Workforce and Adult Education agencies. This resource continues to be used by the founding partners to transform information into actionable knowledge. The acquisition of Adobe Connect software in 2007 further expanded the site’s functionality and provided access to online
meetings and webinars to statewide audiences. The U.S. Department of Labor recognized Colorado for these innovative practices, awarding several million dollars in e-Learning grants to support online learning and workforce development initiatives.
