Computer Based Training (CBT)

If your training is content dense or uses a hierarchy of skill acquisition (where current concept mastery is dependent on mastery of earlier concepts), CBT's integration of text, graphics, video, and sound facilitates your learning process requirements. If you are looking for the right combination of subject matter expertise, Instructional design, graphic design, programming, standards compliance, and project management for your E-Learning initiative then you have come to the right place. Whether it's content to be converted or a new design solution RDSI will deliver a product you can be proud of at a cost you can afford. RDSI will tailor any of CBT's rich, multi-sensory delivery strategies to facilitate your need for greater retention of new knowledge:

Tutorial

The most common of all techniques is the tutorial. It is used to introduce new information that must be taught in a sequential manner. It is useful for teaching factual information, simple discrimination, rules, and simple application of rules.

Drill and Practice

Another commonly used technique is known as drill and practice. It provides opportunities for practice when mastery of a new skill or information is desired. It is used after initial instruction.

Training Games

Training games supplement other instruction and are used to provide motivating and engaging opportunities for practice after a skill or new information is taught. Training games capitalize on the competitive interests of learners and add entertainment value to instruction.

Simulation

The technique of simulation is most often used when practicing a skill in its real context is too costly or dangerous. It provides an opportunity for experimentation, and allows students to test assumptions in a realistic context. Simulations are also used to model real-world situations that are not physically dangerous or costly, in order to build realism and relevance into the training situation.

Problem Solving

One of the most challenging techniques used in CBT is problem solving. It helps students develop skills in logic, solving problems, and following directions, and is generally used to augment higher order thinking skills.

Demonstration/Presentation

Demonstration or presentation is best used to support the introduction of new information. It can also be used as a review tool.

Immediate Feedback

The immediate feedback most computer-based training provides on trainee progress allows both instructors and trainees to monitor progress and adjust instruction accordingly. This feature is important for all skills, because it ensures that students are actually learning what they need to know.

Placement

Placement via on-line testing that matches a trainee with needed training is also built into many CBT systems. By using this feature, you avoid any unnecessary training for an individual. The CBT learning approach can accommodate each individual's needs by "branching" to the level of training that is appropriate for that individual.
