It was specified that the prototype be based on and suitable for use by DSIR- supported programs, but be broad, generalizable, and flexible enough to assure marketability in other research training venues. DSIR's training and education programs provided an excellent opportunity to develop and test a model among programs that have diversity (e.g., systems, level of expertise, needs) yet are united by common goals. During Phase I a prototype web-site, a preliminary draft content/course material module and a delivery system plan. In addition, each contractor successfully conducted initial usability tests that demonstrated the functionality of their sites.
