Updated in 2017 (originally launched in October 2015), the goal of the Digital Instructional Materials Acquisition Policies for States (DMAPS)
portal is to provide a clear picture of each state’s instructional materials policies and practices to help encourage increased implementation of digital learning. Educators, policy makers and private sector executives have the opportunity to learn about state policies and practices regarding the procurement and implementation of instructional materials, including the ability to access individual state profiles.
The site includes multiple topics related to digital instructional materials including guidelines and policies, procurement, accessibility, funding, digital learning resources and vetting.
