Abstract:

This guide was part of a work effort entitled Implementation of Videodisc Interpersonal Skills Training and Assessment VISTA. This guide was targeted for the Army trainer using the original VISTA equipment i.e., Apple II, Poineer LDP-1000 videodisc player, etc.. However, the contents should also be useful to more recent hardware adaptations e.g., the interim EIDS--Sony System. This manual provides an overview of the equipment components of the VISTA System and relates those components to the operation of a lesson by the student. The two instructional modes Experimental and Pedagogical are described along with how VISTA can be used by individuals, small groups, and large groups. Interaction of the student with VISTA is also described. The VISTA project provides a transition between knowing the principles of leadership or counseling, and applying the principles in a particular situation. VISTA combines the training advantages of the microcomputer and the videodisc player used to store an enacted scenario that creates a simulated platoon or company counseling session.
