Overview
MT Continuum overview
• Application to other communities
• Project status
• Lessons learned for other NETC
communities
•
Background
•
Strategic Systems Programs (SSP) re-engineering 30+
week training pipeline for TRIDENT Ballistic Submarine
(SSBN) Missile Techs (MTs) into blended just-enough/justin-time ILE-conformant Instructor Led (ILT) and Interactive
Multimedia Instruction (IMI) segments delivered, tracked,
and assessed through LMS
•
AIM CPM and LO Module toolsets part of SSP’s baseline
business process for this re-engineering
•
First major end-to-end design, development, and
maintenance project that’s defining CPM/LO Module
business rules and data exchange mechanisms

•
Plan, Analyze & Design Phases Completed
–
Delivery Method Analysis Process still needed
–
Scientific/Justifiable/Repeatable
Development fully underway. Development effort is at the
halfway point
–
•
Large emphases on Implementation, Evaluation and
Maintenance
–
•
Assessment, Performance Testing (NAVEDTRA 132)
Versioning, LMS interface
Ongoing integration of CPM/LO Module, IMI toolset, PC
simulation toolset, and LMS for planning, analysis, design,
development, implementation, evaluation, and
maintenance of blended content
MT Continuum
Technical & Schedule Integration
•
MTC development spans from JDTAs to the delivery and
maintenance of training and test assessment material to students
afloat and ashore
•
MTC Lead System Integrator
–
Coordinates technical and schedule activities between and
among developers, relative to the training and assessment
delivery and maintenance goals of the MTC
–
Development functions /roles include: MPAs, Courseware
Developers, ISD, CPM & LO Module developers/maintainers,
LMS developers, PPC and SLC relative to the goal of delivering

MT Continuum Integration Tasks
LMS Interfaces
– Interface specification with LO Module and VIPr
– NUWC Newport lead with inputs from PPC (Chenega Logistics),
ISD/IMI developer (LSI), and AIM team (AIMEREON)
• Content Packaging Tool (CPT)
– Ongoing development by LSI with support from NUWC
Newport Seaware LMS team, PPC, and AIM team (AIMEREON)
• Classroom Control Software (CCS)
– Architectural approach in development by NUWC LMS team,
supported by LSI, PPC, and AIM team (AIMEREON)
– CCS system and developer selection tbd

Application to Other Communities
•
Based on NETC-mandated JDTA as fleet performance
requirement basis for learning content design and
development (NAVEDTRA 137)
•
Closely coordinated with NAVEDTRA 136 development
•
Hands-on production phase development of complete
LO Module ILT lessons/sections including versioning
•
Design of IMI lessons/sections as well as definition of
new JDTA/LO Module versioning concepts
•
Integration of PC Simulation toolset with LO Module
Application to Other Communities
(contd)
•
Bi-directional interface between LO Module and IMI
toolset for integrated IMI / assessment development /
maintenance
•
Development of ILT and IMI test items and output to IMI
toolset for aggregation into LMS-delivered Lesson-level
assessments Sections, including enhanced performance
test item development
•
LMS delivery and tracking of integrated ILT / IMI /
assessment content
•
Integrated surveillance and maintenance environment
for blended (ILT/IMI/test item) SCORM NAVEDTRA 136compliant learning content
