3 James Goff, DISTRIBUTIVE LEARNING IN THE UNITED STATES ARMY RESERVE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ADVANCED LEARNING TECHNOLOGY FORT MCCOY, WISCONSIN 7 AUGUST 2001 James Goff Distributive Learning Support Center

4 James Goff, SUCCESSES WITH LITTLE FUNDING, LITTLE STAFFING, AND HOME-GROWN SKILLS

5 James Goff, ARMY RESERVE READINESS TRAINING CENTER WHY WE EXIST: Training institution for the Army Reserve Student population is the Full-time Unit Support Personnel (FTUS) Curricula/day-to-day Operations 63 Programs of Instruction (POIs)

6 James Goff, WHERE WE STARTED CHARTER: TO RECOMMEND A DISTANCE LEARNING STRATEGY FOR THE ARMY RESERVE READINESS TRAINING CENTER Automation requirements Staff/Faculty training needs Manpower adjustments Locations of distance learning work centers Methods of delivery Conversion methodology Resource requirements STRATEGY TEAM WAS CHARTERED IN FEBRUARY 1998

7 James Goff, FIRST DL EXPERIMENT BACKGROUND INFORMATION REQUIREMENT: BROADCAST INFORMATION OPERATIONS 101 TRAINING TO THREE UNITED STATES ARMY RESERVE AND FIVE ARMY NATIONAL GUARD SITES ON 6/7 AND 20/21 FEBRUARY 1999, AND ANY OTHER REGULAR ARMY AND NATIONAL GUARD SITES AS REQUIRED

8 James Goff, BACKGROUND INFORMATION INTERNET PROTOCOL BASED SOLUTION INTERCONNECTIVITY AUDIO GRAPHICS VIEWGRAPH WITH LOCAL ASSISTANT INSTRUCTOR LEVERAGING ARMY RESERVE READINESS TRAINING CENTER TAKING TRAINING TO THE SOLDIER! Focus on a simple but effective distribution technique that can deliver down to the unit level

12 James Goff, OFFICIAL MISSIONING JUNE 1999 CHIEF ARMY RESERVE MISSIONS ARRTC TO LEAD DISTRIBUTIVE LEARNING +Look at existing courses for conversion +Identify new courses for creation +Test and evaluate hardware and software +Assist and advise Army Reserve community on distributive learning +Initial funding of $250K

13 James Goff, WHAT WE BOUGHT

14 James Goff, Intergraph TDZ 2000 system with Discreet Logic software (Nonlinear Editing System)

15 James Goff, PictureTel Venue 2000 Systems and LiveShare software

16 James Goff, PicTel 550 PC Videoconferencing cameras and software

17 Polycoms Digital CamCorder CD WriterDigital Camera

18 James Goff, HOW WEVE PROGRESSED

19 James Goff, Next training effort: 88P – Railway Equipment Repairer 88T – Railway Section Repairer 88U – Railway Operations Crewmember - Three sites - Two week-ends - 59 Students

20 James Goff, Established Web site - Survival Kits - Management Controls Program - Mobilization Overview Module

21 James Goff, Established the Distributive Learning Support Center 3 Course Developers 4 Visual Information Specialists 1 Webmaster 1 Coordinator 1 Administrative Support Clerk

22 James Goff, The Army Distance Learning Program Installation of three Digital Training Facilities - 36 Networked computer work stations - Full two way audio/video - Instructor workstations for broadcasting

23 James Goff, Situation Within the three components of The Army, ADL can leverage the full power of computer, information and communication technologies through the use of common standards in order to provide learning that can be tailored to individual needs and delivered anytime- anywhere. USAR ADL 88N Test TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT COORDINATOR

24 James Goff, N MOS Qualification Test Provide Phase 1 Military Occupational Specialty reclassification training for 88N (Traffic Management Coordinator) soldiers in the Army Reserve Transportation (Movement Control) Detachments. Compare the impacts of starting multiple iterations of reclassification training as soldiers are recruited into their unit to reclassification training in the traditional scenario (Oct/Nov start). Students included in this training will be those that are not already enrolled in Phase 1 MOSQ training. These students will be trained at multiple sites using VTT. USAR ADL 88N Test

25 James Goff, Why 88N? Phase I is 69 hours long, 66 hours are pure knowledge based, ideal for conversion to ADL instruction USAR has over 100 Movement Control Detachments Delivering MOS classes via VTT from ARRTC facilities has been successful in the past VTT Classrooms exist close to or at most Detachment locations Recruiting and qualifying 150+ soldiers in a short time span will significantly increase the validity of distributive learning methodologies USAR ADL 88N Test

26 James Goff, USAR ADL 88N Test Lessons Learned So Far Nothing is as easy as it looks A true tri-component One Army effort Attention to detail is significantly exaggerated in multiple class scenario: +Student handouts +VGT font and color Service and component differences create initial obstacles to smooth conductivity Time zones complicate broadcasts

27 James Goff, WHERE DO WE GO NEXT?

28 James Goff, Use existing technologies for course delivery - 72 Weeks training in Digital Training Facilities - Convert courses for Web delivery Experiment with software applications Build on our knowledge and skills

29 James Goff, Establish a network of DL practitioners in the Army Reserve Continue partnerships with: Other military services Other United States Federal agencies Universities and colleges Civilian corporations
