Abstract : This project focuses on the development of a low cost hypermedia training module aimed at clarifying the mechanics of the Navy's P-3C armament system. Historically, this system has been an area of great ambiguity for the officers assigned to man the P-3C as evidenced by scores recorded on both written and practical evaluations. Reduced funding available for training has served to complicate this problem by affording these officers significantly reduced opportunities for actual hands on training and manipulation of the armament system. Consequently, this project was developed as a self-paced training module for use on a Macintosh home computer and combines the information contained in all three P-3C reference manuals along with actual representations of the aircraft's armament panels. The program was created utilizing the HyperCard 2.1 development software and affords the learner the opportunity for a great deal of interactivity and feedback. The project is divided into five chapters including an introduction, review of the literature, methodology, program description, and summary and conclusions. The literature review concentrates on the following topics: adult learners, computers and adult learning/motivation, learner and program control considerations, Hypermedia, Hypermedia design principles, review of the present P-3C training syllabus, and interviews with officers assigned to the P-3C training squadron....
