LCTL database upgrade

The LCTL project recently upgraded the LCTL database of Less Commonly Taught Languages course offerings in North America. The database is a part of the Center for Advanced Research on Language Acquisition (CARLA) at the University of Minnesota.

The database, which has been a part of CARLA since 1993, has been technically upgraded with more searchable fields. In addition to the standard searchable items (language, state, institution, K-12, summer, post-secondary), more search options have been included such as levels offered, availability, emphasis or focus of the course, degrees offered by the relevant department, study abroad components, and more.

The database includes the following listings:

9,287 College/university courses (from Acholi to Zulu)
2,853 K-12 LCTL programs
254 Distance ed offerings
