Title: Expeditionary Warfare School Distance Education Program IMITDS Alpha Prototype


1
Expeditionary Warfare School Distance Education
Program IMI/TDS Alpha Prototype
  • In-Progress Review

March 10, 2005
2
Background
  • Three Options to Complete EWS
  • Resident School
  • Seminar Distance Education Program (DEP)
  • Individual Guided Study DEP
  • Majority of Marines complete EWS via DEP

3
Problem
  • Gap exists between training available to students
    at Resident EWS and DEP students
  • Identical Training Requirements, but.
  • Different levels of interactivity
  • Different learning experiences
  • Disparity of technology-based learning

4
College of Continuing Education Plan
  • Incorporate technology-based learning into the
    EWS DEP
  • Start with the Marine Corps Planning Process
    (MCPP)
  • MCPP Interactive Multimedia Instruction (IMI)

5
Prototype Solution
  • Integrate SCORM conformant courseware with a
    HLA-compliant simulation
  • Course of Action War gaming lesson
  • MAGTF-XXI simulation

6
Research Areas
  • Technical and operational feasibility of merging
    two technologies
  • SCORM-conformant IMI (COA wargame lesson)
  • HLA-compliant simulation (MAGTF-XXI)
  • Effectiveness of the combined instructional
    package for distance learning students

7
Major Tasks Completed
  • Modified IMI to seamlessly integrate MAGTF-XXI
  • Split lesson into multiple SCOs
  • Implemented new content for SCO boundaries
    introduced MAGTF-XXI
  • Implemented Java applets to enable linkage
    between SCORM HLA
  • Created content for Old Dominion scenario
  • Terrain, scenarios, logger tapes

8
Major Tasks Completed (cont)
  • Implemented AAR enhancements to MAGTF-XXI
  • Text-to-speech interface for annotations
  • Virtual laser pointer
  • Highlight animation
  • View control interactions
  • Distributed LOS and WEF

9
Changes to the MCPP IMI Content
  • Added Practical Exercise (PE) utilizing MAGTF-XXI
  • Hands-on practice to complete synch matrix
  • Interact with war game
  • Reinforce PE with knowledge check questions
  • Similar to after action review (AAR)

10
HLA/SCORM Technology
  • Specifics Behind this Technology
  • Java applets that can be embedded with content
  • Launcher
  • Start MAGTF-XXI executable
  • Command line arguments for start-up parameters
  • Collector
  • Return completion status
  • Zip file loader
  • Download initialization files

11
HLA/SCORM Technology (cont)
HLA/SCORM linkage architecture and control Flow
used in prototype
12
Benefits of Simulation
  • MAGTF-XXI allows students to observe a COA
    wargame
  • Reinforces unit symbology
  • Incorporates warfighting functions
  • Actions, reactions, counteractions
  • Details of war game process

13
MAGTF-XXI Practical Exercise
  • Practical Exercise 1 student uses synch matrix
    to record a COA wargame
  • Who provides input?
  • Where does it go in synch matrix?
  • What level of detail is needed?

14
MAGTF-XXI Practical Exercise (cont)
  • Practical Exercise 2 Interactive session
  • Refine war game using existing resources
  • See how changes affect outcome of war game

15
Alpha Version Prototype Evaluations
  • Is it SCORM 2004 Conformant?
  • Does it run properly in the SCORM 2004 RTE?
  • Is it instructionally sound?

16
Future Deliverables
  • Beta Version of Prototype
  • Updated MAGTF-XXI Users Guide
  • Draft Training Effectiveness Evaluation (TEE)
    Plan
  • Final TEE Plan
  • TEE Report
  • Final ADL Prototype
  • Final ADL Prototype Report

17
Next Steps
  • Demo the Alpha Version
  • Complete remaining agenda items
  • Discuss process for reviewing/testing the alpha
    version prototype
  • Plan date for next team meeting

18
Questions
  • Questions?
