Our study of collaborative land navigation in the real-world provides input for our design of the human computer interface of a virtual learning environment. Study findings reinforce the applicability of the Recognition-Primed Decision-Making model to the land navigation domain. Also, study of the interpersonal communication between team members informs our understanding of the relationship between tutor and student. Finally, we found that knowledge elicitation based upon narrative form generates valuable descriptive knowledge quite naturally and that team members exchanged information through the storytelling medium.
