Abstract:

This is a study of implementing multimedia computing systems for training applications in the United States Marine Corps. Multimedia computing is the presentation of information combining text, graphics, audio, animation, and full-motion video. A brief review of multimedia technology is provided followed by its context within the Department of Defense, current use within the Marine Corps, and the role it can play in training Marines. Multimedia training was found to be widely used throughout the Department of Defense and its use is supported by research study and policy directives. Current use within the Marine Corps was found to be minimal. Focus groups were conducted to examine why the Marine Corps role is so limited and to discuss future implementation. Recommendations are provided for the Marine Corps to expand their use of multimedia as a means to augment conventional training methods.
