A System to Provide Military Curriculum Materials to Civilian Vocational and Technical Educators.
Budke, Wesley E.
This document represents the fifth of five components of a project conducted to design a comprehensive information system (termed SYSTEM) for identifying, selecting, and disseminating relevant military curriculum materials to civilian vocational and technical education programs. This particular document suggests the design, operating procedures, and implementation strategies for the SYSTEM. In addition, several SYSTEM alternatives are proposed along with some speculation about their possible effects on cost and SYSTEM effectiveness. Chapter I introduces the need for the SYSTEM and discusses SYSTEM requirements. The chapter also covers the design, management, and coordination of the SYSTEM. Chapter II treats in more detail the four interrelated components of the design: Acquisition and selection, materials preparation and referencing, duplication and distribution, and user services. Chapter III contains a recommendation for SYSTEM implementation, a strategy for making materials available, a strategy for achieving user awareness and utilization, and an implementation schedule. Chapter IV discusses SYSTEM alternatives, some of which would increase the scope of work and others which would decrease the scope of work. The potential of an expanded system is also examined. (The final report of the project, which provides an overview of all project components, and reports of the other four components are available and abstracted separately.) (LMS)
