1 AIM Toolset Interfaces with Authoritative Technical Data
Jim Ferrall, AIM Team Jeff Clem, LM for ADL CoLab/Wayne Gafford 24 August 2011

2 Overview Current AIM-to-IETM interfaces, including S1000D Issue 3
ADL CoLab S1000D Issue 4 Reduction of Total Ownership Cost (RTOC) Bridge Project

3 The Problem No cost-effective method for responsively keeping learning content current with changes to authoritative digital technical data AIM solved for CD-based tech data in 2000 Navy shifting to on-line enterprise data repositories with no enterprise solution to this problem Even more important for distributed self-paced training as inherent instructor surveillance efforts during personalization and presentation are removed Must address emerging S1000D standard adopted by DoD / Navy, at least through Issue 3

4 Functional Requirement
Support design and development of learning content tied to authoritative technical and procedural data Streamline learning content QA review, approval, and configuration management Simplify instructor preparation and delivery Promote efficient life-cycle surveillance and update Enhance cost-effective re-purposing of proven learning content

5 IETM Authoring Unique Element ID: Alphanumeric value used by IETM to assign distinct identifier for specific element Element Title: English language descriptive name for each individual node in IETM Persistent Element ID: Unique element ID maintained over multiple versions of IETM Version Information: Alphanumeric value used by individual IETM element to identify change level for that particular element (when element was added or modified) In order to achieve the curriculum development, display, and surveillance capabilities described on the preceding slides, the IETM author must provide the functionality depicted here: - unique element ID - meaningful title for each element - element ID must be retained from version to version of the IETM or at least mapped from one version to the next, so AIM can do a meaningful comparison of the structure of one version with the other

6 IETM Interface Process
EXTRACT structural data (“table of contents”) from IETM database IMPORT structural data into AIM BROWSE IETM Structure via Resource Requirements List (Site RRL). Launch IETM viewer/browser to verify applicability of reference LINK specific Related Instructor Activity (RIA) or Trainee Guide (TG) Sheet to IETM reference CONDUCT SURVEILLANCE of curricula by importing revised IETM structural data and using detailed Change Impact Report/auto-generated maintenance flags signaling affected curriculum elements

7 Curriculum Development
This slide presents a graphical overview of the process described on the following slide: - extracting IETM structural data from the IETM authoring system - importing that extracted data into AIM - browsing the IETM structure within the AIM RRL and launching directly to a particular section of the IETM in the IETM viewer - linking the selected IETM element to the DP/RIA or TG sheet in AIM

8 Curriculum Change/Revision
This graphical view of the surveillance and maintenance process illustrates the similarities to the original development process and highlights the addition functions provided. Specifically: - the extract from the IETM contains version information about each element of the IETM in addition to the basic title and ID provided for development - once imported into AIM, the updated version of the IETM (“version 2”) provides the basis for generating a Change Impact Report. This report pinpoints all curricula – to the DP/RIA and TG sheet level – that link to IETM elements in version 1 that were changed or deleted in version 2. - if, based on review of the Change Impact Report, the AIM user decides to make a change to one or more courses, AIM will generate flags for all DP/RIA or TG sheets which were linked to an element of version 1 of the IETM which was either changed or deleted in version 2

9 Current S1000D Projects E-2D: S1000D-SCORM RTOC API Bridge
S1000D Issue 3 Sponsor: NAVAIR (PMA-231 – Dwayne Cole/coordinated by NAVAIR S1000D evangelist Bob Sharrer) AIM II curricula in production use by E-2D Hawkeye upgrade program for delivery to CNATT S1000D-SCORM RTOC API Bridge S1000D Issue 4.0 interface with CPM Sponsor: ADL CoLab (Wayne Gafford) AIM team participated in RTOC Year 1 and now in RTOC Year 2 due for delivery in September 2011

10 E-2D Program Interface S1000D Issue 3
Tech data created by Northrop Grumman in InMedius CSDB and exported to Contenta CSDB for life-cycle management and delivery Final XML tech data product published from Contenta and distributed to all users for viewing via NAVAIR Standard IETM Viewer (NSIV) AIM II interface with published XML data for initial development/life-cycle surveillance / maint of learning content – will not interface directly with Contenta CSDB

11 E-2D Program Interface (S1000D Issue 3)
Narrated Demo

12 RTOC Year 1 (FY09) S1000D Issue 4.0 Tech data created in several S1000D Issue 4-compliant CSDBs Modernized AIM interfaces directly with CSDB(s) via open API / Web services being designed and developed as part of this project Learning content developed and updated in AIM to be passed to CSDB(s) for integration with tech data CSDB output published in SCORM-compliant format for use with variety of e-learning delivery systems including SCORM- compliant LMSs Narrated video demo

13 Modernized AIM in RTOC Year 1

14 RTOC Year 2 (FY10) Build on Year 1 prototype efforts
Add LSI and their CBT toolset to the RTOC team Focus on adapting CPM to output front-end design data to CSDB as SCORM Content Package Module (SCPM) LSI authoring tool plays primary role in building out learning content as S1000D Issue 4.x learning data modules (LDMs) based on SCPM generated by CPM and passed by CSDB Final content package stored in CSDB and output for use with LMS
