Abstract:

The Navy faces a number of problems in managing the design, development, and maintenance of its curriculum materials. Many of these problems can be solved by the introduction of a set of computer-based tools for automating the curriculum development process. The AIM project is building these tools by applying the recent advanced in instructional science, educational psychology, computer-assisted drafting and publishing, and computer science and technology. These tools will eventually allow Navy curriculum developers to efficiently produce standardized training materials that are technically accurate, to maintain this technical accuracy by easily updating the electronic data bases underlying the course materials and to distribute rapidly these text and graphic training materials over local and wide-course materials and to distribute rapidly these text and graphic training materials over local and wide-area networks. Keywords Prototype software tools, Software development, Software engineering, Computer based authoring.
