Abstract
We propose the development of a cost-effective simulation authoring capability to augment efforts to develop an intelligent instructional design advisor to be used by subject matter experts with little formal training in instructional technology. Capabilities to be considered for Phase II implementation include: ability to mix interactive text, graphics, music, digitized sound, CD-ROM audio, branching, record keeping, animation and the system will deliver highly realistic real-time, on-line training. Looking toward a Phase II, we will specify a system capable of delivering fully integrated, real-time multimedia in a captivating presentation mode. Thus, user-students will be able to sustain their concentration while learning complex cognitive concepts. Through the use of object-oriented design, the system will allow user to develop courseware that previously required the skill of programmers, instructional designers, subject matter experts and graphic designers. Courseware development costs will be dramatically reduced with this system. Delivery of the instructional design approach will take advantage of the power and flexibility of the system. With the advances in the 80386-80486 environment and those anticipated in the much-talked about 80586 environment, the speed of the system is in itself an advantage in maintaining student interest.
