Hyltin, John P.; And Others
This report describes DVI (Digital Video Interactive) technology, current authoring languages and tools, and the reasons for developing new tools and applications. The work described was performed by Betac Corporation as part of a Phase II Small Business Innovation Research project. Section I provides background information on DVI. DVI technology is described in more depth in Section II, including ActionMedia hardware, ActionMedia production tools, and ActionMedia software libraries; the next section examines authoring languages and tools, including existing systems and simulation requirements in authoring packages. Section IV focuses on the software development approach, including previous developments, generic tools and objects, application specific tools and objects, development methodology, and the Intelligent Tutoring Strategy approach. A Life Support Officer training course using DVI is described in Section V, including training needs assessment, a life support equipment investigations course, resources for course development, target student population, teaching philosophy, and the course outline. Section VI summarizes lessons learned, and the final section discusses future directions, including object libraries and tools commercialization. (TMK)
