Abstract : The Air Force does not currently have adequate organization and control of computer-based training (CBT) efforts at the small unit level. The use of CBT has the potential for improved training at lower cost, but that potential is often not realized. Advances in computer technology have made CBT systems more readily available and their use is spreading rapidly. A lack of organization causes duplication of effort, a failure to share resources, and poor training for CBT developers. This paper traces the development of CBT systems in the Air Force, looks at present systems, reviews recent DoD organization initiatives, and discusses areas for improved use of CBT within the Air Force. Keywords: Computer aided instruction; computer applications thesis.
