Abstract:

Many training sequences require the simultaneous presentation of more than one visual image or images with more than one visual component. These may consist of pictorial images accompanied by verbal material, schematics accompanied by legends, comparative pictorials, or diagrams accompanied by pictorial or verbal material. In other situations, coordinated instruction is required for each member of a small team being trained. At present, developing and producing such images is so technically complex that it is not accomplished by the majority of USAF training installations. The objective of this investigation was to develop and describe procedures and techniques for generating and presenting such instructional material. An informal survey of USAF training compatible with multiscreen presentations was conducted to determine types of control techniques that would be of benefit to the Air Force. It was determined that no one system would be appropriate in all situations. Most of these situations could be classified into two categories first, those in which the student or group of students required more than one simultaneous visual and, second, those in which teams of students required synchronized but different instruction. The first category could be divided into one group that required complex presentations from the beginning and a second group that required less complexity initially, but the complexity could be expected to increase or vary.
