Solutions must be found to reduce the cost of delivering training. A primary cost is the travel expenses to transport, house, and feed students. One potential solution is to deliver adaptive instruction over the Internet. There are many issues facing those who use the Internet to design, develop, and deliver training, ranging from instructional design and security issues to platform compatibility, accessbo;otu. amd aitjpromg tpp;s ossies/ Tje [rppf=pf=cpmce[t tpp;s fpr tjos effprt wo;; omtegrate respirce based ;earmomg. ;pst cpst cp;;abpratopm tecjmoqies. registration and monitoring techniques, computer-managed instruction techniques, the functionality of a simulation/synthetic environment, and the more difficult adaptive functionality to demonstrate the technical feasibility and the pedagogical effectiveness of the Internet as a distributed learning environment. The overall objective is to create a library of Java tools and techniques to enable adaptive, distributed training over the Internet and address some of the issues stated. The key to enhancing learning through the development of new applications via the Internet with measureable ROI is the creation of tools that are intuitive, assist in the creation of asynchronous and synchronous online learning functionality, provide registrar and feedback capabilities, and adapt to the students' inputs. The proposed tools will demonstrate this functionality.
