This study assesses both the desirability and the feasibility of introducing present video conference technology into the traditional classroom setting used by most Navy courses. While training is always a critical need for a high-tech organization like the Navy, the costs involved with training are rising at an alarming rate. This study examines the effectiveness of video conferencing as a medium for Navy training in light of current trends in video conference systems that may lower training costs. It also explains why it is widely accepted that there is unlimited potential for video teleconference systems to improve training effectiveness. First, the current level of effectiveness and efficiency in the Navy training environment is discussed. Then a brief description of teleconference technology follows. Overall teleconference system costs compared to current training costs are evaluated and support the proposal to substitute video conferencing for travel. How video conferencing affects student productivity and performance is also considered; research indicates students will learn as much through tele-training as in a traditional training environment. Finally, this thesis examines why the Navy training community, specifically local training commands, may experience significant change in hierarchy structure and authority. Theses. (SDW)
