Abstract:

The Department of Defense DOD initiated programs to implement the Defense Science Board Summer Study 1982 recommendations for emphasis on the application of advanced technology for training, collection and analysis of data on cost and effectiveness of training, and enhanced transfer of instructional technology. The objectives of this project in support of the DoD initiatives were to 1 develop interactive videodisc instruction for Army enlisted personnel to learn problem solving strategies and include it and the previous videodisc lessons in an integrated learning strategies curriculum, 2 develop a parallel curriculum in a standard paper-pencil format for use at locations without videodisc equipment and to facilitate future media comparisons in evaluations planned by the US Army Research Institute ARI, and 3 create a videotape presentation of the videodisc instruction that has been sponsored by ARI.
