Abstract:

The objective of the project was to find more cost-effective ways to train Navy personnel who are geographically remote from existing instructional resources. A field survey was conducted of a representative sample of 13 sites in public education, industry, and the military which are currently using videoteletraining VTT to deliver remote-site instruction. The systems surveyed are of one of three types 1 open training networks, 2 closed training networks, and 3 conferencing network. The majority of training network use one-way video with two-way audio although the use of two-way video is increasing. There appears to be a trend for VTT systems to expand in the form of VTT consortia. Poor quality audio is a problem shared by many VTT systems.
