TRANSCRIPT

  • Montana LINCS: Another LINC in Professional Development2001 to 2008 http://www.nwlincs.org/mtlincs/index.htm

  • Brief History of NIFLIn 1992 the Literacy Act created NIFL, www.nifl.gov. Its purpose was to develop a national database. To do this, NIFL devised LINCS in 1994, www.nifl.gov/lincs. At that time LINCS could see the potential use of the web to complete its mission. LINCS created four regions: Eastern, Midwest, Southern, and Western-Pacific. The focus of LINCS was to develop the infrastructure (tools and standards) which would be used on the web. The various regions began collecting resources. LINCS staff/committee created a template for LINCS regions which gave more cohesiveness to the project.
