The information system used for this essay is ALMS. Army Learning Management System.
The three recommendations I came up with for the system are listed in the following paragraph and need to be incorporated into the paper.
The first recommendation I would come up with would be some sort of backup plan for my system in case it goes down. Currently when the system crashes, we have to wait on it to be fixed. A solution would be to have a second system that saves the information and also saves the progress already completed within the first system. I think when it crashes there should be a redirect site that takes you straight to the secondary site and only be able to use it when the ALMS system is down and not as a primary system. The second recommendation would be to incorporate something to tell which classes would qualify you for promotion points. As of now, there is a list of hundreds of classes to take, but to know which gives you promotion points you have to go through the list and check. If there were a check mark indicating that the class will help with points which would be awesome. The last recommendation would be to incorporate a chat feature when soldiers need help. I think that calling and waiting countless minutes for a representative is insane. Also, I do not like to talk on the phone so chatting would be an ideal situation for me.
Also I will upload the template that has to be used when writing the paper.
