Effectiveness evaluation of force protection training using computer-based instruction and X3D simulation
MetadataShow full item record
Due to growing operational constraints accelerated by the Global War on Terror, the United States Navy is looking for alternative methods of training to maintain its force in a high status of readiness. Updates in technology over the last decade have prompted Navy officials to take the initiative to update its training technologies. Computer-Based Instruction provides alternative means of training so that the training of war-fighters can be accomplished efficiently and effectively, saving the U.S. Navy time and resources while maintaining a high state of readiness. The goal of this thesis is to combine the principles of Instructional Design Systems (ISD) technology and advanced Simulation in order to produce a multimedia training capability for Navy and Marine Corps Officers. Specifically this thesis applies ISD principles to engineer and improve the Anti-Terrorism Force Protection (AT/FP) Officer Course Level II (ATO Level II Course) lessons for use by Navy and Marine Corps officers. The SavageStudio scenario generation application, originally designed for assessment of force protection measures in a port environment, is used to allow students to develop simulation lessons for this course. The final product of this thesis is a training course consisting of two lessons combining Computer- Based Training and Simulation providing interactive lessons and exercises, and two media delivery comparison studies with results for the Anti-Terrorism Force Protection lessons. The first study compared media effectiveness of Computer-Based Training versus Classroom instruction. The second study assessed the effectiveness of Computer-Based Training and the use of simulation for AT/FP.
