Abstract : This report discusses the amount and kinds of DoD interactive courseware (ICW) programs that are candidates for transfer to the private sector. The Defense Instructional Technology Information System (DITIS) was analyzed to identify ICW programs that are candidates for transfer from the DoD to the private sector. Out of 4644 ICW programs that have been reported to DITIS since its inception in May 1991, 2718 were identified as having possible utility in meeting private sector training requirements. Of these 2718 programs, 591 were computer-based instruction programs that run on the MS-DOS operating system, 1997 were computer-based instruction programs that run on the NOS operating system and were prepared using the TUTOR authoring system, and 130 were interactive videodisc programs that run on the MS-DOS operating system. Final determination of the transferability of these programs will depend on more authoritative suitability, legal, and security reviews that must be undertaken on a case-by-case basis. The DoD has taken several initiatives to assist the private sector in transferring DoD ICW programs to the civilian workforce for training. However, a number of issues, particulary those involving the availability of resources and the establishment of responsibilities, must be resolved before a comprehensive set of procedures for transfer can be successfully implemented.
