2 Authoring Instructional Materials (AIM)
Implementing AIM at Your Activity – A General Approach Based on Lessons Learned March 2012 Tiffany Dombrowski AIM/CPM Program Manager NAWCTSD Orlando

3 Objective of Presentation
To begin to answer some questions you may have regarding AIM implementation at your activity including: What is AIM? Why should I use AIM? What are the different AIM products and which should I use? How should I approach implementation?

4 What is AIM? Government-owned & managed system of software tools used by the Navy to design, develop, update, manage, and integrate training content Provides automated conformance to standards NAVEDTRA 130B – AIM II NAVEDTRA 131B – AIM I NAVEDTRA 136/137 – CPM/LO Module

5 Why should I Use AIM? Links learning requirements to performance standards Links learning content required resources including Interactive Electronic Tech Manuals (IETMs) (S1000D & other formats) Automates identification and notification of potential learning content update requirements based on performance standard & tech data changes Streamlines integration of changes into previous learning content baseline with minimum impact Supports multiple output methods (paper, PDF, HTML, & SCORM conformant XML formats)

6 Why should I Use AIM? (contd)
Automates new NETC Job Duty Task Analysis process Facilitates design, development, and maintenance of blended learning content AIM is a mature application & service provider supporting the development & sustainment of 250,000+ instructional hours of formal Navy training content AIM has proven results and supports efficient, cost effective development & maintenance of learning content

7 Which AIM Product Should I Use?
Traditional Navy Curriculum Development AIM I supports NAVEDTRA 131 Personnel Performance Profile (PPP)-based curriculum development Traditionally used by Undersea, parts of Surface and some Engineering activities AIM II supports NAVEDTRA 130 Task-based curriculum development Traditionally used by Air, part of Surface and most other activities New Navy Curriculum Development CPM/LO Module supports new Navy guidelines as reflected in NAVEDTRA 136 and NAVEDTRA 137 CPM centrally hosted as Web-based enterprise planning tool LO Module packaged with both AIM I and AIM II products Supports reuse of traditional AIM content when re-authoring to meet new JDTA-based curriculum guidance

8 Which AIM Product Should I Use? (contd)
Content Planning Module (CPM) is designed to: Link Learning Objective to Job Duty Task Analysis Data (JDTA) per NAVEDTRA 137 Link learning objectives to reusable Learning Objects Provide the capability for populating important project and instructional design strategy information to assist with management of learning content development efforts Enable linking skill data to existing traditional learning content

9 Which AIM Product Should I Use? (contd)
Learning Object (LO) Module is designed to: Fully develop and maintain instructor-led training content, based on CPM-generated, course outline of instruction per NAVEDTRA 136 and NAVEDTRA 137 Automatically generate default metadata per NETC guidelines (Mar 2012) Enable digital linking of granular learning content ‘chunks’ to pertinent Interactive Electronic Technical Manual (IETM) authoritative technical data Support design and maintenance of self-paced content via interface with selected CBT tools

10 Which AIM Product Should I Use? (contd)
So which do I use? If you work for NETC, be sure to discuss with NETC N74 CPM is mandated for generation of JDTA data for all new projects and LO Module is tightly integrated with CPM CPM and LO Module are increasingly mature new tools, with a number of prototype projects currently underway to proof the new NAVEDTRA 136/137 business process they automate and to identify additional functional enhancements needed There is much more experience with the traditional tool set but it has limits especially if a transition of content to self-paced E-learning is anticipated

11 How should I approach implementation?
Discuss CPM and LO Module implementation with the AIM team To implement traditional AIM: Course selection Develop short courses first to build expertise Sun-downing (do not convert courses scheduled to be canceled within 3 years) For initial projects get help from AIM team (in person or via web-meeting) early on in process Build an AIM guru for your activity Send them to formal training Have them contact the AIM team for web-based assistance and follow-on training Have them represent you on the AIM Functional Requirements Board (FRB)
