About the ASN
JES & Co. collaborated with professor Stuart Sutton at the Information School, University of Washingon, and created the ASN through NSF awards DUE-0121717, DUE-0840740. The ASN provides access to machine-readable representations of learning objectives published by education agencies and organizations. In 2012, the ASN received subsequent support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
As of February 2014, the ASN is owned and operated by D2L Corporation.
