Abstract : This report gives an overview of my sabbatical year in the USA from September 1990 until September 1991. For almost four months, I worked on the ISTS project at the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) in Daytona Beach, Florida. The ISTS (Intelligent Simulation Training System) is a g system for the air traffic controller using artificial intelligence techniques. I have developed a limited prototype of the ISTS on the Sun SPARCstation using the simulation package MODSIM II.5. The second part of the study year was at the U. S. Army Research Institute for Behavioral and Social Sciences (ARI) in Alexandria, Virginia. I worked on the analysis and design of Organon, a tool for graphical knowledge organisation. Organon is the foundation for a future instructional design environment. I built a prototype of Organon on a NeXT workstation using the object-oriented prototyping tool Interface Builder and the programming language C. The sabbatical year was very useful and instructive. Some of the information, knowledge and skills I already used in projects at TNO/FEL. The field of instructional design is very appropriate for TNO/FEL because in the future many research projects will be in this field. The Organon concept can also be used in the future authoring environment of the FELIX intelligent tutoring system.
