Abstract:

The report describes the development and contents of an interactive videodisc IVD lesson that was produced by the National Shipbuilding Research Program NSRP to demonstrate interactive multimedia as an effective technology tor teaching shipyard trade skills. Interactive instruction evokes the active involvement of the trainee in his or her own computer controlled, audio-visual instruction. Through a desk top PC, the instruction exchanges information with the trainee on a personal basis processes the trainees responses to generate appropriate rewards or remediation and measures, evaluates and documents the trainees learning performance. An earlier study by NSRP surveyed American shipyards to investigate their experiences with interactive multimedia for trades training, and to determine if American shipyards would participate in a demonstration of interactive instruction for that purpose. Findings of the survey led NSRP to sponsor the development of an interactive lesson titled, Fundamentals of Arc Stud Welding. This lesson 1 demonstrate the ca abilities and benefits of interactive instruction tor training shipyard skilled trade tasks, 2 shows how interactive multimedia can be used for both tutorial and simulation instruction, 3 illustrates the ease with which interactive courseware can be developed by shipyards, and 4 provides an interactive lesson for instructing the fundamentals of arc stud welding. The development process and contents of the interactive lesson are thoroughly described in the report.
