Sea Stories: A Collaborative Tool for Articulating Tactical Knowledge.
Radtke, Paul H.; Frey, Paul R.
Having subject matter experts (SMEs) identify the skills and knowledge to be taught is among the more difficult and time-consuming steps in the training development process. A procedure has been developed for identifying specific tactical decision-making knowledge requirements and translating SME knowledge into appropriate multimedia representations. The procedure, which is called Sea Stories, is based on construction and analysis of a scenario by one or more SMEs. The Sea Stories procedure allows a team of domain experts to "articulate" their knowledge by describing a scenario (their sea story) in a series of computer-based storyboards. The major knowledge elicitation tasks performed by the SMEs are as follows: construct a scenario illustrating a particular problem or procedure; test the scenario's logic by identifying key variables in the scenario and their relationships; identify the knowledge required of decision makers to perform successfully in the scenario; and provide graphical, auditory, and verbal representations of the key knowledge elements. Possible storyboards include spatial situation overviews, team interaction diagrams, task flowcharts, and equipment diagrams. The Sea Stories procedure will be automated by using a suite of tools that are largely available as commercial off-the-shelf products. (MN)
