CLARK
Cybersecurity Labs and Resource Knowledge-base
About
CLARK is a prototype curriculum management platform that will host a diverse cybersecurity learning objects.  It was created because there is a demonstrated need for a high-quality and high-availability repository for curricular and ancillary resources in the cybersecurity education community.  Certain libraries that already exist do not meet all of the requirements needed for all of our diverse learning modules.
There are three main components of CLARK
Outcome Based Entry

Curriculum entered into the knowledge-base will need to outline learning goals and outcomes, corresponding assessment techniques, and appropriate instructional strategies. This will provide a curation process to allow effective learning materials to be housed in the knowledge-base while reducing the barrier for entry.

Template-Based Storage

Curriculum in the system will adhere to pre-published templates for course, units, modules, micro-modules, and nano-modules. The templates will be flexible and the system will allow for templates to be added.

Flexible Multi-Interface Search

There are many users of the cybersecurity curriculum. They are in all sectors (government, industry, academia), different levels (job training, K-12 and above), and have diverse use-cases (curriculum to satisfy CAE designations and accreditation, creation of courses or entire programs, or learning materials at a certain level in the blooms taxonomy). The CLARK search will provide flexible and usable interfaces for these users.
