Abstract:

This paper describes the Training and Education Network On Request TENOR, a training system developed by Ontar Corporation, and the advances that have been made since the original TENOR paper was presented at ITEC 2001. TENOR is a multi-media, adaptive training system, where the content and rate of presentation is paced by the capabilities and requirements of the user. Ontar demonstrated the system running on an intranet, and arranged for users to gain access to the dialup network. The web is an ideal media for providing an adaptive training environment where the material presented to every individual is generated on the fly and is tailored to the individuals particular needs and capabilities. The entire United States Department of Defense community is actively engaged in distance learning, and all the US military services are making a commitment to it. This paper examines the details of the system architecture and its database fields, the lessons and modules developed, customization abilities, and unique features such as cross-platform use, links to real-time information, audio capabilities, student-instructor interaction options, and automatic bandwidth adjustments. It will also illustrate how a student will access, logon, and progress through a lesson.
