The research evaluates oral program instruction used with a multitape recorder, the audio notebook, as a means of promoting adaptation to student differences and flexibility in instructional scheduling. Use of the Allied Naval Signal Book required by the CIC watch officer position was programmed for the audio notebook in terms of the same learning objectives as currently stated for the standard course for the watch officer. The oral learning program took less time, much less for those with Navy experience, and achieved the objectives better than the classroom lecture method. The Audio Notebook proved resistant to down-time. This makes it potentially useful for shipboard training. The learning program developed can be used in any school or shipboard situation where the learning objectives correspond to those of the watch officer course in which it was evaluated. It can be readily expanded to include additional objectives which might be needed.
