Abstract : This Research and Development (R&D) study was conducted in the use of advanced instructional technology to introduce Interactive Courseware (ICW) into naval aviation maintenance classroom training. The goal was to design an innovative computer based instructional system in the area of corrosion control for naval aircraft. Technautics was tasked to evaluate existing interactive authoring systems and naval aviation corrosion control training courses. The research described in this report defines a better approach to using multimedia in ICW. It presents integrated media and planning techniques for providing effective multimedia in a computer based training system that is uniquely focused on corrosion control training. This report includes a detailed presentation of the Phase I R&D effort, including the need for multimedia interfaces in maintenance training, an outline of current state of the art ICW technology and authoring systems, and future Computer Based Training (CBT) design, development, and implementation strategies. For example, the underlying strategy behind the authoring software is the development of a training system that requires minimal programming, operates under Microsoft Windows, and has the ability of integrating mixed media (i.e., text, animation, sound, still pictures, graphs, and video) into a simple presentation by moving icons with a mouse, keyboard, or touchscreen.
