Abstract : Computer-based media production tools have matured sufficiently to enable the Air Force to readily provide very powerful curriculum development tools based on the existing Desktop III or IV. However, providing instructional designers and developers with a multimedia development workstation is not equivalent to providing them the power to use them well. While an Automated Instructional Design Advisor (AIDA) will certainly aid designers and developers in choosing appropriate media to solve instruction problems, provision of such powerful medial production tools will require a commitment within the Air Force to provide technical and creative support. An examination of matured computer-based media production technology was undertaken and a group of ISD experts was impaneled to discern which available tools hold the most promise and value for instructional design. This study presents the finding of the Delphi panel as well as considers the impact of providing such tools to designers and developers. The contractor recommended that implementation of a computer-mediated communication system be concurrent with the emplacement of computer-based media production tools to create a collaborative instructional development environment that will improve media creativity and dynamism.
