Abstract:

System design considerations for a computer based instructional CBI laboratory are explored and the concept of laboratory hardware and software modularity is presented. The adaptive features of this type of instructional system are discussed and categories of training are addressed in terms of instructional goals and methods. A number of computer hardware and software topics such as, operating systems, languages, communications, input and output capabilities, and graphics are presented in terms of training related applications. Laboratory configurations are also proposed for typical training applications and the topics of two dimensional 2D and three dimensional 3D simulation are addressed. Both 2D and 3D simulation are suggested as preferred instructional design approaches for courseware authoring in the CBI laboratory. Author
