Abstract:

This report focuses on how 3-D graphical and interactive features of computer-based instruction can enhance learning and support human cognition during technical training of equipment procedures where procedural training tasks are often highly specific to a piece of equipment. Studies of the effects of graphics, motion, and interactivity in technical training, and reports of successful instruction using state-of-the-art graphics and animation were reviewed to extract a set of guidelines for using 3-D interactive graphics to teach equipment procedures. The guidelines are directly applicable to the design of training of explosive ordnance disposal EOD render-safe procedures.
