"Phase I of this solicitation sets the groundwork for the creation of an integrated intelligent tutoring and JPA solution. The work accomplished here addresses not only the status of the broader technical and business marketplaces, but also the specificneeds of a sample system. By taking this multi-path approach, the solution will be on-topic for the Navy as well as for commercial organizations.At the heart of Phase I is the performance of a functional specification, or needs analysis, focused on a sample system. This in-depth analysis provides real-world basis for the development of patterns and methodologies used in creating a broad-basedsolution, one that can work in any type of environment and to any scale. Using a diverse team of engineers, analysts and scientists, methodologies for reusability, scalability, multi-modal information presentation, and porting will be developed.Phase I also includes a review of current marketplace initiatives such as SCORM in order to ensure compatibility, modularity and reusability. As a final step, Phase I will result in a conceptual design that takes into consideration not only research andmethodologies, but also the capabilities of the chosen host application for meeting real-world needs. The anticipated benefits of this Phase I proposal is to take the results and create a commercially viable product for an immense and growing need. Based on a study by IDC, the market for E-learning solutio
