The purpose of this thesis is to examine how the AEGIS Training Program is utilizing Computer-Based Instructional Technology (CBIT) to increase efficiency and effectiveness in a period of declining budgets and increasing technology. The AAEGIS Training Program is faced with a variety of logistical, educational, and manpower-related issues that are not adequately addressed by traditional methods of training and instruction. In response, the AEGIS Training Center (ATC), Dahlgren, Virginia, is testing an electronic "Classroom of the Future" concept. This thesis provides an overview of the background, development, and early testing of the AEGIS "Classroom of the Future" and the associated Interactive Electronic Technical Manual (IETM) project. Problems encountered, expected benefits, and early training results are discussed as well as recommendations for further analysis.
