Abstract:

The Low Cost Microcomputer Based Training Systems project addressed the amount of development effort required to create computer-based instruction CBI by instructional developers, the proliferation of nontransportable machine-specific CBI software over incompatible hardware systems, and the opportunity to standardize previously successful CBI software using generative techniques. The project conducted assessments of Navy training patterns relative to CBI, developed the Computer Based Educational Software System CBESS, and fielded CBESS at representative test sites. CBESS standardizes a set of CBI development and delivery tools in five subsystems which include general CBI programs, a management interface, and three specialized subsystems involving fact memorization, technical vocabulary, and equipment simulation. Instruction developed at test sites spanned several content areas, including threat fact memorization with a videodisc, study skills, mathematics, and electricity and was employed as a supplement to instructor resources for remediation, refresher training, self-study, and repetitive practice.
