The U.S. Department of Transportation (US DOT) needed to improve their ability to train transportation professionals in federal, state, and private organizations and encourage lifelong learning. They needed to effectively reach a widely disbursed group and provide a convenient means of educating those transportation professionals.
The approach selected to meet US DOT’s need was to deliver the training as interactive courses the users can load on their own PC. A. J. Boggs & Company’s mission was to display the feasibility of an interactive instructional CD-ROM system which publishes, promotes and teaches professionals. The first training topic was about technologies required to deploy Intelligent Transportation Systems.
A.J. Boggs completed design and prototype of a training course using interchangeable component architecture for learning objects. The approach of using interchangeable component architecture improves the ease of implementing reusable courseware, which speeds the development of training courses.
