PENSACOLA, Fla. (NNS) -- Navy Knowledge Online (NKO), the Navy's interactive Web site offering a one-stop location for Navy education, training and professional growth management, transitioned to a new look and feel June 3.

"NKO's redesign focus was to improve usability and navigation to assist individual users in finding content specific to their needs," said Peg David, the NKO Program Manager for the Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) in Pensacola. "Government and user testing provided feedback and helped pave the way for the road ahead. Results of the user survey of the new NKO 'look and feel' were universally positive, and helped drive the decision to move out with the cutover to the new system. We're looking forward to users navigating the site and welcome all feedback."

Vice Adm. Kevin Moran, NETC commander and the Navy's chief learning officer, noted the NKO cutover offers significant improvements over the previous version.

"We continue pressing forward to make the NKO Sea Warrior portal a dynamic gateway to training, education, e-learning, individual's 5 Vector Models, and manpower and personnel data for the Sea Warrior," said Moran.

Sailors can explore the links on the NKO homepage, or take advantage of the new user guides under "About NKO." Detailed instructions, user guides and tutorials for the new improvements can be found under the "Inside NKO" tab. These links and learning tools have been updated with the cutover and offer the latest information.
