Pagination or Media Count:
The increasingly complex environment of the 21st century demands unprecedented knowledge, skills and abilities for people from all walks of life. One powerful solution that blends the science of learning with the technological advances of computing is Virtual Environments. In the United States alone, the Department of Defense has invested billions of dollars over the past decade to make this field and its developments as effective as possible. This 3-volume work provides comprehensive coverage of the many different domains that must be integrated for Virtual Environments to fully provide effective training and education. Vol 3, Chapter 8, describes a form of virtual environment training, distributed mission operations DMO, that has provided the United States Air Force USAF with an effective method for training required new skills and competencies. While the focus in this chapter is on use of DMO principles in USAF training, the authors point out that distributed virtual environments for training are being used by all U.S. serices and coalition forces to increase readiness.
