The Distance Learning Dataset Training (DLDT) system designed by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) is an online, interactive tool to introduce many NCES datasets to data users. Two types of DLDT modules are available: common modules and dataset-specific modules. The common modules help users understand NCES data across the education spectrum, introduce complex survey methods, and explain how to acquire NCES micro-data. The dataset-specific modules introduce and educate users about particular datasets: what the data represent, how the data are collected, the sample design, and considerations for analysis. This video gives an overview on DLDT.
