Abstract
The US Army faces a significant burden when authoring training content to meet the rapidly changing nature of potential threats and adversaries. Currently, training material is often tied to the implementation platform and cannot be easily redeployed to new platforms or systems. In addition, training materials cannot be easily explored or managed through a single system. To increase the efficiency of training authoring, management, and delivery, we propose to develop and evaluate the feasibility of a Collaborative Repository and Exchange for Adaptable Training Environments (CREATE). CREATE eases the difficulty of authoring, managing, and deploying training content by using semantic technologies to extract meaning from training materials, and then provides a collaborative, web-based environment to search, manage and deliver those training materials.
