An Automated Approach to Instructional Design Guidance.
Spector, J. Michael; And Others
This paper describes the Guided Approach to Instructional Design Advising (GAIDA), an automated instructional design tool that incorporates techniques of artificial intelligence. GAIDA was developed by the U.S. Air Force Armstrong Laboratory to facilitate the planning and production of interactive courseware and computer-based training materials. The tool is a case-based system that incorporates a short exposition of Gagne's nine events of instruction and four complete examples of applying the nine events to identification of naval insignia, classifications of electronic resistors, checklist procedure for the F-16 Gatling gun, and procedure for testing a patient's respiratory capacity using a spirometer. The paper covers (1) the issues involved in developing an automated instructional design advisor; (2) the results of Gagne's evaluation of the initial GAIDA case (the checklist for the F-16 gun); (3) a description of how GAIDA has been redesigned; and (4) how GAIDA will be used in future instructional design research and development projects. (Contains 18 references.) (KRN)
