The Air Force Advanced Instructional System (AIS): An Overview.
Yasutake, Joseph Y.; Stobie, William H.
The Air Force Advanced Instructional System (AIS) is a prototype computer-based multimedia system for the administration and management of individualized technical training on a large scale. The paper provides an overview of the AIS: (1) its purposes and goals, (2) the background and rationale for the development approach, (3) a basic description of the total system, and (4) the developmental status and overall schedule. Practical considerations influencing the design approach for the AIS prototype included features of: cost-effectiveness, systems approach, incremental payoff, and maximum modularity and flexibility. Presently, AIS development is directed to the technically-related development activities of instructional materials development, instructional strategies, computer support, and system evaluation; future development will include system transition and institutional change.
