NTSA and the ADL Initiative successfully held the first iFEST online conference where attendees were able to view the most cutting-edge presentations and influential speakers. iFEST 2020 provided a unique opportunity for military, government, industry, and academia professionals to share the latest in distributed learning innovations.

The iFEST conference is an annual milestone for tracking the development of science, technologies, and policies for distributed learning. In 2020, amid a pandemic-driven global expansion of online collaboration, iFEST became an affirmation of the new distributed learning reality.

This year’s iFEST theme was “Working Out What Works: Creating Value From Innovation.” iFEST speakers told attendees to seize opportunities in the new distributed learning reality to modernize learning systems and create a “new normal.” Here are some of the key takeaways from iFEST 2020.
