The objective of this thesis research was to create an embedded tutorial for the Ramtek 9400 Color Graphics Display System. An embedded tutorial is a self-paced Computer Aided Instruction (CAI) learning technique which is implemented on the actual equipment the subjects are learning to use. This technique has tremendous potential in helping the Department of Defense meet its goal of increased manpower effectiveness. The Tutorial should eliminate the necessity for each user to possess and master large quantities of often confusing documentation. It should also free members of the laboratory staff from repetitive teaching tasks, allowing them to provide more specialized consulting. Goals of good CAI system design and man-machine interface, and the design techniques actually used to implement the embedded Tutorial are discussed. Evaluations by faculty, staff, and students were performed to identify areas of improvement. A User's Manual and Software Maintenance Manual were also written to accompany the embedded Tutorial.
