Abstract:

The Department of Defense has initiated programs to implement the recommendations of the Defense Science Board Summer Study 1982. These programs emphasize the application of advanced technology to training, and training technology transfer. Objectives of this project in support of the programs were to 1 develop interactive videodisc instruction for Army enlisted personnel, to help them learn problem-solving strategies, 2 create a videotape to present information about the videodisc instruction that the Army Research Institute has sponsored, and 3 support training technology transfer at the Armor School and Center. The products of this developmental project were two videodiscs which, together with their associated instructional software, were designed to train problem-solving strategies to Army enlisted personnel, materials for media comparisons of the contractors videodisc instruction, a set of videotapes describing ARI videodisc instructional projects, and a needs analysis of diagnostic testing and remedial training for an enlisted personnel course.
