Distributed Training for the Reserve Component: Course Conversion and Implementation Guidelines for Computer Conferencing.
Hahn, H. A.; And Others
The purpose of this handbook is to provide background and guidelines for course designers and instructional developers who will be developing Reserve Component training for the United States military using asynchronous computer conferencing techniques. The recommendations in this report are based on an international review of the literature in distance education and experience gained from developing and conducting Reserve Component training. The handbook is based on a model of remotely conducted, distributed training called the System for Managing Asynchronous Remote Training (SMART). The cornerstones of the SMART model are that training is asynchronous in time, computer mediated, and distributed to soldiers' homes through telephone communications systems. The guidelines are intended to supplement the Systems Approach to Training process, emphasizing the steps course designers must implement or adapt to accommodate conferencing for distributed training. Specific guidelines are given for the Analysis, Design and Development phases; examples and blank worksheets are also included. Sample hardware assembly instructions are appended. (DB)
