MT Continuum Status Presented by Bryan Miller, LMSSC Gerry Cullison, SSP Peter St Jacques, NUWC MTC Lead System Integrator 21 August 2014 Topics • • • • • • MT Continuum (MTC) Overview Project Status MTC Components MTC Integration Tasks Learning Community Applicability Lessons Learned Background • Strategic Systems Programs (SSP) re-engineering Missile Technicians (MT’s) 30+ week training pipeline: – Blended just-enough/just-in-time ILE-conformant content – Instructor Led (ILT) and Interactive Multimedia Instruction (IMI) sections – Delivered, tracked, and assessed through LMS – Training via both afloat and ashore LMS’ • AIM CPM and LO Module toolsets are 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 MT Continuum Team • • • • • • • • SSP - Requirements Owners, Afloat Training Capability Contractor Team – ILT development, IMI Storyboard development, SME’s NAWCTSD / AIM team - CPM/LO Module support NUWC – MTC Lead System Integrator, LMS (Seaware) LSI, Inc. – ISD and IMI design/development; integration tool development Chenega Logistics, LLC – CM/QA agent for SSP SLC –CCA for all MT curriculum Fleet – SME’s/Management of training afloat Project Status • • Plan, Analyze & Design Phases Completed – Delivery Method Analysis Process still needed – Scientific/Justifiable/Repeatable Development fully underway. Development effort is progressing on schedule – • 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 the JDTA’s to the delivery and maintenance of training and test assessment material to students afloat and ashore • MTC Lead System Integrator (NUWC) – Coordinates technical and schedule activities between and among developers, relative to the training and assessment delivery and maintenance goals of the MTC MT Continuum Components • Plan/Analyze – • Design – – • CPM (JDTA/TPP/TCCD) CPM (COI) LO Module (final design of ILT/preliminary design of IMI) Develop – – – – LO Module (complete for ILT and test items) Venus.net IMI toolset (complete for IMI and assessment Sections) VIPr (PC simulation scenarios for ILT and IMI) Content Packaging Tool (CPT) (provides sequencing and navigation of an AIM-based blended training solution for use in a SCORMconformant LMS (Seaware)) Content Packaging Tool (CPT) AIM Course Package (SCORM Export) LMS AIM ILT IMI Staged Content Content Packaging Tool (CPT) CPT Package AIM IMI Package Requiring Update The CPT Package provides both the runtime package for the LMS and the AIM re-ingestion package for content surveillance. MT Continuum Components (contd) • Implement – – • Evaluate – • Training content includes assessment items Seaware LMS (ILT/IMI/assessment delivery and tracking) Seaware LMS (student testing /test item analysis) Maintain – LO Module/Venus.net (integrated surveillance/update of ILT/IMI/test items) MT Continuum Integration Tasks LMS Interfaces – Interface specification with LO Module and VIPr (JHU APL) – 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) • Learning Community Applicability • 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 Learning Community Applicability (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 Learning Community Applicability (contd) • Role of MT Continuum to ‘Big Navy’ future training – Training 2020 study group following MTC as one of two major prototypes under new Fleet Forces Command team leadership • OPNAV • Fleet Forces Command Lessons Learned • JDTA – • Maturity of Design Documents and Processes – • Foundation. Getting this right cannot be overemphasized. IMDP, Learning Objectives (ISD Considerations), Process Documents, Assessment Design, Time to Train Estimations, Delivery Method Analysis Early definition of detailed blended content structure and ILT/IMI delivery implementation – Delivery interface specification – ILT/electronic classroom delivery Questions?
