The University of Florida’s (UF) Center for Latin American Studies has provided Title VI funding and support for the NOBLE project since 2009 when the first group of K-12 teachers met in Florida to discuss the development of business language courses in Florida. NOBLE was then established as an online learning community (Community of Practice -CoP). While the initial focus of NOBLE was primarily business, the project has gradually expanded to support language and culture study across professional fields such as healthcare, STEM, and law enforcement.
