Now a days computer based training is increasingly becoming interactive and realistic. For ex interactive multimedia training integrates the use of text, video and graphics and sound with which the trainee interacts. This also happens for the training of physician wherein he takes hypothetical patient's history, conduts examination and checks tests and even hears the sound of patient's heart.
What else is being done in this field now a dayz in India and abroad

Hello Mam,

As CBT is the rapidly growing and effective method of training, many organizations are shifting from IBT(Instructor Based Training) to CBT(Computer Based Training).

Below are the some examples of Industry/Companies which are using Computer Based Training:

CBT in Aviation

Air Traffic Control: Computer system provides same conditions that a traffic controller faces. He learns how to make planes land and take off during bad weather conditions. He can see the different plane on the screen and then decide how to make them land.

Pilot Training: Mostly pilots are trained through Pilot stimulators. But it’s very costly. But in CBT using a mix of video, graphics and audio, some airlines were able to cut down on the amount of simulator time that their pilots required to gain. This in turn made pilot training cheaper and faster and cut simulator training costs. It provides similar weather conditions to the pilot. These are totally risk free and are very effective.

HP
Hp is also training their employees through Computer Based Training Systems. It is the best way in which they can provide same type of training to their employees in different areas of world. They have also developed software programmed through which we can learn how to diagnose the problem on our workstation or operating systems. (HP Vision Field Diagnostics Computer-Based Training Utility)

Anheuser-Busch Company
It is a Belgium based American owned brewing and theme park company The Company operates 12 breweries in the United States and nearly 20 in other countries. Also one of America's largest theme park operators.
This company is also training their workers through computer based training systems. In both divisions (Brewery and theme park) they are using CBT.

Good Evening Mam,
Some Computer based training techniques are:-
1) IBM’s virtual world program
The idea behind the program was to take new employees from more remote locations and give them an orientation and training platform that would not only connect them to a larger social network, but also allow them to develop the necessary skills needed to perform their jobs.
IBM created IBM@Play, a virtual world where employees create avatars and interact in real business solutions in a safe, fictional environment. The idea was to take a simulation and present it more as game.
2) E-learning games ICICI Bank plays to train its new employees
India’s largest private sector bank, play is an integral part of work. Junior and middle-level managers hired for customer-facing functions are made to play online games for several hours before they get down to the business of dealing with people. More than 2,000 ICICI employees have been playing games, and winning prizes, as preparation for handling customers. The use of online games fits in nicely with the HR department’s focus on e-learning.
3) Training techniques used by Airtel
To encourage learning within the organization, the company has set up a state-of-the-art learning centre. Here, employees can get logged on to customized training programmes developed by British Telecom (BT). Though the material is transmitted through the Internet, they are not accessible to anybody outside the organization as the access is protected.

Hello Mam,

Companies looking to CUT DOWN EMPLOYEEtraining costs are tapping into collaboration technology, ranging from flashy, full-fledged video-on-demand services to wikis and micro-blogs.

Employee training can be expensive for companies. Classes take up valuable time, can generate travel expenses, and require outlays of cash to pay experts to offer the same instruction over and over again. Translating that training content into video and social software platforms like wikis and blogs can reduce or eliminate many of those costs.

"There's demonstrable savings in terms of travel and in distance-learning types of things, and then there's productivity benefits in terms of giving employees the information they need to do their job," .

"CISCO" often touts the millions it has saved in travel through its TelePresence systems, but even a minimal capital investment, coupled with a smart strategy, can provide serious savings.

COMPUTER BASED TRAINING GUIDE CBT TECHNIQUES

---------------------------------------------------



Most CBT uses one or a combination of the following techniques:

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 should be 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.

Most CBT incorporates one or more of these techniques. A training game, for example, might have some of the elements of drill and practice; a tutorial might use problem solving questions. If one or more of these techniques is right for meeting your training requirements, CBT may be an appropriate training method for you.

Gud Evening Mam,

With the worldwide expansion of companies and changing technologies, the demands for knowledge and skilled employees have increased more than ever which is putting pressure on HR department to provide training at lower costs. Many organizations are now implementing CBT as an alternative to classroom based training to accomplish those goals.
About 75% of the organizations are providing training to employees through Intranet or Internet. Internet is not the method of training, but has become the technique of delivering training.CBT does not require face to face interaction with a human trainer.

The various methods that come under Computer based Approach are:

1.INTELLEGENT TUTORIAL SYSTEM(ITS) – It is a text based System and interactive System. It consists of a System which consists of expert knowledge base, A trainee model, A training session manager, A user interface.eg – ISC learning Group, United Nations for Drugs and crime provide CBT to 3,000 employees per year.

2.PROGRAMMED INSTRUCTION (PI) - It comprises of graphics, multimedia, text that is connected to one another and is stored in memory. This method allows the trainees to go through the content according to the individual speed, and capability. If the trainees are not able to retain the information, they are referred back to the original information. If the trainees retain the information, they are referred to the next log of information that is to be learned.eg – IT companies like Epistema, Webucator Inc.

3.VIRTUAL REALITY –Virtual Reality is a training method that puts the participant in 3– D environment which simulates situations and events that are experienced in the Job. Eg – Military Training

Hello Mam,

Introduction to e-learning

E-LEARNING

Many companies have implemented e-learning, which encompasses several different types of technology assisted training, such as distance learning, computer-based training (CBT), or web-based training (WBT). Distance learning occurs when trainers and trainees are in remote locations; typically, technology is used to broadcast a trainer's lecture to many trainees in many separate locations. Distance learning can be much less expensive than paying for trainees in multiple locations to travel for a lecture, but it may reduce motivation to learn because of the remoteness of the trainer.

Computer-based training and web-based training are virtually similar. With this type of training, content is delivered through the computer, using any combination of text, video, audio, chat rooms, or interactive assessment. It can be as basic as reading text on a screen or as advanced as answering quiz questions based on a computerized video that the trainee has viewed. The difference between CBT and WBT is that, with CBT, the training program is stored on a hard-drive, a CD-ROM, or diskette. This means that it is not easy to update and may be more difficult for employees to access. Conversely, WBT is housed online through either a company's intranet or through the World Wide Web. This increases accessibility of training; employees may even be able to train from their home computers. Additionally, updates to content are quick and relatively easy. For example, if an error in the training content is found, one update on the training program housed on a server updates the content for every trainee who accesses it after that point. For a change to made to CBT, new CD-ROMs or diskettes would have to be produced.
E-learning is an alternative to classroom-based training, and it can provide a number of advantages. E-learning can:
• reduce trainee learning time, by allowing trainees to progress at their own pace
• reduce the cost of training, particularly by reducing costs associated with travel to a training location
• provide instructional consistency, by offering the same training content to employees worldwide
• allow trainees to learn at their own pace thereby reducing any boredom or anxiety that may occur
• provide a safe method for learning hazardous tasks with computer simulations
• increase access to training to learners in locations around the world
E-learning is effective at developing declarative and, in particular, procedural knowledge. It can be useful in developing some types of skills and for modifying attitudes. E-learning develops declarative knowledge through repeated presentation of facts, using a variety of formats and presentation styles. It can do an excellent job of describing when and how to apply knowledge to various situations. Procedural knowledge is developed by allowing trainees to practice applying the knowledge to various situations simulated by the software. This training delivery method is valuable because it can automatically document trainee's responses, interpret them, and provide appropriate practice modules to improve areas of weakness.
Using e-learning, skill development is limited by the software's ability to mimic the trainee's job environment and context. For some situations, such as training employees in the use of word processing, spread sheet, and other computer-based software, e-learning is an appropriate choice for teaching skills. Here, the tasks and situations trainees will face on the job are easily simulated by the training software. On the other hand, it is very difficult to develop CBT software that realistically simulates interaction between two or more people or a person and an object in a dynamic environment. Other methods must be utilized for these situations.
E-learning can be effective at developing or modifying attitudes. The factual relationships among objects and events, and the consequences of particular courses of action, can be portrayed in many ways with e-learning technology. How objects, events and their relationships are perceived can be altered by the visual and textual presented in a CBT. However, since the objects and events are simulated, rather than real, the emotional or affective side of attitudes may not be activated. In addition, there is no opportunity during e-learning to discuss attitudes with others in a setting where a trainer can monitor, direct, and reinforce the discussion to support the desired attitude(s). This may be one reason many adult learners indicate a preference for e-learning to be combined with some form of instructor-based training. Trainees often prefer blended training, which is when both computer and face-to-face training are combined, and it is used by many organizations.

Hello Ma,am

computer training techniques are used in following :-

The best way to see how CBT works ; One is a Contractor Orientation system that is video based and delivered over the web. The other is a operator training CBT for a pulp mill which can be delivered on a CD-ROM or over a company Intranet.

Contractor Orientation
Operator Training

1. MEDICAL CAREERS:

medical career online training (distance education) courses offer you the experience of a virtual learning center, which allows you to set your own pace, work within your own schedule, and study how/where you want. Through medical training online, you will learn how to transcribe, code, bill, assist with patients, and process all kinds of insurance forms. You will learn to use software to augment your experience. Upon online medical training course completion, you will be certified in your field of choice.

2. Online Study:

Online training lets students and teachers work completely on the Internet from any location with computers or other mobile devices. In many cases, a computer and Internet access is all that is required to enroll in a web-based training course. While some courses are just as strictly scheduled as traditional classes, meaning students are required to be virtually present at a specific time and day, others are flexible, assigning work and providing feedback when the student completes the project.

3. Corporate pilot training

For most professional pilots, it's once or twice a year at the training center, spend a few solid days of training and learning, pretty much doing the same thing year in and year out. As professional pilots cramming so much into a training/checking event, that it was nearly impossible to learn anything, it was a matter of surviving the enormous amount of material and maneuvers that were mandatory to accomplish in the limited amount of time provided. Would having continual access to a library of web or computer based courses help with proficiency, at least proficiency with book knowledge. Hands on flying proficiency is another story

4Coors - Multi-location Multi-personnel Safety Induction - Interactive DVD

Molson Coors the international brewer wanted to replace the then-existing interactive contractor induction programme, which was used at all 4 of their UK process plant sites.

What made the Rossiter & Co solution unique was the provision of a flexible induction, for all types of personnel.

This meant having a custom induction localised for each site, with separate versions for each type of worker, ie, new starters, visitors, contractors, office contractors, office staff.

This comprehensive safety video approach means that Coors now deliver precisely the right safety messages, to precisely the right work groups, for precisely the right locations.

The whole production runs from a single interactive HD widescreen DVD.

is using this technique,since the variety and sub variety of products are increasing day by day so they are proving catalogs ,charts and strategies for selling by using web ,this is effective for cost cutting and also saving time.
Most Fortune 500 companies have offices and competitors around the world. Traditionally, these companies first train their North American sales representatives, service staff, and engineering groups on new products and then train employees in Europe, Asia/Pacific, and the rest of the world.

Quick start training
Quick Start develops multimedia-based training CDs as part of a complete training package when that is the best way to meet a client company's needs. For the Sony training Project, Gorgein firm assembled a team of experts to work with Sony employees, such as Rosauer and other technical experts.
Quick Start headed the production end, providing animators, computer programmers, graphic artists, instructional designers and video producers.
customized training programme

Computer based training can be customized to the needs of each employer, providing an important additional benefit. While traditional classroom learning forces students to adapt to a rigid class structure, computer based training programs can be adjusted and customized to the need of each business. If the business needs to focus on a particular area of the program, that ability is available. If the workers at the company will not need to use a particular feature of the software, that portion can be omitted from the training.
ex-lybrinth consultancy of gurgoan is using this technique

survey training programmes trough software


Describes a study which aims to reveal the current methods and tools of training in US hospitality firms and to discover the opinions of those using them as to whether the methods and tools are effective and efficient. Hospitality training executives were surveyed and asked to identify the methods and tools used in their organization, to rate each method and tool, and to give suggestions for improvement if they believed it was needed. Answers were compared according to position of the respondent, size of company based on number of employees, annual sales, and level of company.

Hello Ma'm

Some good examples of the companies using CBT techniques:

1)CBT for Police Radar Operators(Delivering of Radar operators for members of municipal police department)- Police departments are responsible for conducting training and certification of police officers. Traditionally, these courses are taught by a state certified instructor in a classroom setting. As the no started to rise, it became difficult to manage huge persons. So, they gradually shifted towards CBT technique for training.

2)SRI International, a leading independent research institute based in Silicon Valley, has been awarded a $3M contract to develop a statewide combat readiness training system for the California Army National Guard that integrates live battle exercises with computer-based simulators. This will greatly increase training effectiveness by linking live outdoor training exercises with simulators to create a realistic battlefield environment where command, infantry, armored, and eventually, air elements of California's Army National Guard can interact during a combat training event without leaving their home stations.

For example, through computer networking, a command post in Los Alamitos, California could send orders to a tank unit training at Camp Roberts near Paso Robles, while another Guard Unit in San Luis Obispo dispatches simulated soldiers to the virtual, interactive battlefield which is shared by all participants. Previously, such large-scale combined arms training exercises were infrequent because of the costs required to move widely distributed Guard units and their equipment to a single exercise location.

3)Also in the Astronaut training, new CBT methods are used..

PC-based safety training is used in a variety of different industries. PC-based training allows the user to be self-taught and complete the training at his or her own pace.
Workplace Safety:- PC-based safety training is a technology advancement some companies opt for when training new employees or providing continuing education opportunities. The PC-based learning system saves money by not having a dedicated classroom trainer, and allows users to complete the training at their own pace. Implementing new safety protocols are easier to transition into a company by providing PC-based safety training continuing education for employees.

Hello Mam,

CBT is very much popular now a days and it is used in different field.

Computer Based Training:

These self-study computer training DVD/CD based courses are packed with interactive content such as animations, videos, narrated step-by-step instructions, computer labs, hands-on exercises, quizzes and practice exams. Self-paced CBT training courses share the perfect medium for those who wish to learn at their own pace, on their own desktop.

Advantages:

CBT can improve job performance:

• It trains people in specific skills for specific performance.

• It trains people in general skills that broadly affect general performance.

• It provides increased access to information tools for decision making.

CBT is cost effective.

CBT gives trainers increased control over training activities:

• It provides management systems for tracking trainees' progress and location.

• It provides on-line testing to match a trainee with needed training. It provides consistency of training in terms of quality and information presented.

• It provides standardization of training when training occurs in several work locations simultaneously.

COMPUTER BASED TRAINING METHODS:

-Microsoft Excel computer based training- a training software you can take both online or on your computer that will teach you basic and advanced techniques in using MS Excel.

- Adobe Photoshop CBT- is a training course for those who want to learn photo editing and graphic designs.

-In military and air force:

Computer simulations allow the military to train soldiers for severe combat situations without actually having to put them in harm's way. The Air Force can train pilots in flight simulators long before they actually get in the cockpit. Computer simulations have become so advanced that computer games have begun to model themselves after combat and flight simulator software.

-Computer based speech training:

Auditory feedback is used by children who have normal hearing abilities to learn speech. People who are profoundly deaf and cannot learn speech through the normal process of listening and mimicking the patterns of vocal articulations can make use of computer-based speech training.

Advantages of speech training method by computer based:

1. In two studies reported by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, there was little significant difference between computer-based speech training and human speech therapy. Computer-based training is convenient--the student does not have to travel and wait to begin an exercise. It is also less costly once the software has been purchased.

Disadvantages of speech training by computer based:

2. Human interaction is an integral part of learning speech, not only for social purposes but also for physical ones. For example, part of the mechanism of speech is that the vocal folds produce vibrations in the throat. Hearing-impaired children can touch the neck of the therapist to feel the vibrations and then approximate them by feeling their own throat.

Hearing-Impaired Children

3. Computer-based speech training provides both audio and video feedback to children and adults who have difficulties with certain articulations of speech. Progressing at their own pace, students' training time is not limited to an hour as with a speech therapist.

hello mam,

computer based training is very effective and excellent concept of training now days its area is increasing very rapidly.

CBT is cost effective it eliminate travel for trainees.

CBT also self paced,flexible and individualized .

CBT is tireless and in CBT,their is increased control over training activity.

Design of computer based training:

During the design phase (which is usually closely integrated with the development phase), trainers work from learning goals to Design a training system that learners and trainers can implement to meet the learning goals. This phase also typically includes identifying learning objectives (which culminate in reaching the learning goals), needed facilities, necessary funding, course content, lessons and the sequence of lessons. The various training media are selected, e.g., instructor-led, computer-based, World Wide Web-based, self-directed, interactive and computer-based, or multi-media. Course content is often piloted during the development phase, or initially tested, to ensure the content is understandable. Therefore, this design phase can also can include identifying evaluation criteria to evaluate if course content is understandable by learners.

uses:

In aviation:

CBT is also used in pilot training by using video graphics etc.so use of cbt cut simulator training cost.

In marital arts:

There are few websites who give training for marital arts by providing different CDs like Volume 1: MMA Fundamentals,Volume 2: Mastering MMA Defense, Blocking And Movement, Volume 3: MMA Fight Strategies etc.

In McDONALDS:

McDonalds use CBT to orient new employee and traine them about safety,security,hospitality as well as skill needed for various stations such as fryer,drive thru and front counter etc by using CD-ROMS.

Hello mam,

Computer based training techniques are very important in present times because of the changing landscape of the industries requires nonstop learning to stay ahead. Studies showed that students learned 60% faster when using computer-based interactive tools, increased understanding by more than 55%, and retained new knowledge up to 50% longer. Some of the examples are as follows:

1. THE APPLICATION OF ENGINE ROOM SIMULATORS

Today, many maritime academies and vocational training centers’ apply engine room simulators in the teaching/learning Process. The objective of this training is to establish a minimum level of specialized knowledge and qualification in global ship traffic. An interactive program has been devised where in trainees have the possibility to familiarize themselves with the system and develop operational skills. Various multimedia techniques of simulation have been applied in this program, including three-dimensional presentations, sound applications, diagrams, pictures, etc. computer-based training (CBT) is being increasingly utilized in maritime academies as a preparatory stage, prior to the use of full mission engine room simulators. The basic role of CBT interactive programs is the familiarization with individual auxiliary machinery and associated systems, prior to the commencement of the operation with the whole engine room plant .The use of CBT modules is especially important in the case of complex marine control systems, where, computer-based training (CBT) is being increasingly utilized in maritime academies as a preparatory stage, prior to the use of full mission engine room simulators. The basic role of CBT interactive programs is the familiarization with individual auxiliary machinery and associated systems, prior to the commencement of the operation with the whole engine room plant .The use of CBT modules is especially important in the case of complex marine control systems, where a perfect knowledge of different operational modes is required.

2. UNODC (the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime) has developed computer based training (CBT) on drug law enforcement. As Transnational drug trafficking is a global concern with drug traffickers using latest technologies to avoid detection at land borders, airports and seaports by Customs officers. Traffickers use innocuous couriers and adopt new methods to smuggle drugs. This global training tool applies a problem-solving and interactive approach and is managed by a Learning Management System (LMS). It covers 65 relevant topics, including the review of passport for land controls and airports; behavioral indicators at airports and questioning persons at seaports/airports. The subjects are divided into 5 chapters: i) interdiction techniques for land controls, ii) interdiction techniques at airports, iii) interdiction techniques at sea ports, iv) intelligence and controlled delivery and v) money laundering.

3. CBT in Energy Sector: Computer-based training is a technique of choice, as demonstrated by the three methods described below.

Customized Instruction

Power plant operators are required to maintain company standards of knowledge and performance, leading to a growing need for time-efficient operator training methods. In the past 10 years, power plant operator training has evolved from primarily text-based computer programs to sophisticated, interactive multi-media learning aids. For example, a currently available, four-module CD-ROM course called "EPRI CBT" comes complete with video, animation, photographs, graphics, and professional narration. These computer-driven simulation and training tools can be used as classroom aids in conjunction with group training sessions, or to guide tutorial sessions for independent study.. This tool in particular contains general information about power plant turbines, specific information about some conventional turbines, and customized information about the power plant turbines where the training is taking place Users of these tools have found that as they learn more about how operations affect plant equipment, they can make better decisions about start-up procedures and more quickly diagnose problems. As a result, plant staff productivity increases, plant performance improves, and equipment life is extended.

One energy company, City Public Service of San Antonio has been using EPRI CBT for the past year with great success. They are taking their customization capability one step further by setting up operator competency standards based on training test results.

Virtual Control Center

A second method of efficient computer-based training involves sophisticated, realistic emulation of power systems in real time for training purposes. For example, EPRI's Operator Training Simulator (OTS) provides such a realistic copy of an energy control center that operators say it is indistinguishable from the real thing. The transportable OTS operates within an energy company's control center energy management system (EMS). Representation of the control center is exact, with the same displays, consoles, and controls used in the control room. Its models provide real-time simulation, allowing system operators to learn skills that help them operate the power grid efficiently under common and emergency situations. The latter scenarios include some that might not be encountered in a real-world setting for years, but that nonetheless are critical for comprehensive training.

Instructors guide the training sessions, monitor system reactions, and evaluate trainee progress from behind a glass wall overseeing the trainees. Trainees (usually no more than four at a time) see and hear what they would during actual power system operation. In some scenarios, the instructors, posing as power plant or substation personnel, call the trainees or vice versa, to simulate a real environment during emergency procedures.

The outcome of OTS training includes the following:

• Understanding of the power system concepts behind operating procedures

• Application of the operational knowledge using prepared operating orders

• Ability to make proper decisions where no procedures exist

• Honing of interactive skills to communicate with others..

Desktop Classroom

A third example of computer-based training involves training on a variety of topics that can be done at users' desktops. For example, in interactive distance learning (IDL) systems, students at remote sites use microphone-equipped response keypads to communicate both verbally and electronically in real time with an instructor at a studio site. Students ask and answer questions electronically, while the instructor uses a touch screen to issue formatted questions and activate student microphones. Questions and comments are heard by all the students on the network. This interactivity helps to boost student attention level and interest while providing instructors valuable real-time feedback.

One such program, the ONE TOUCH system, can handle up to 1500 remote sites, dependent on the comfort level of the user and the type of course content being covered. This training method is used for employee training in such areas as management, human resources, sales, marketing, and technical development. Compared to conventional training methods, customers using the ONE TOUCH IDL solution have reported a 100% increase in comprehension and an 80% increase in the amount of content covered.

Conclusion

These advanced training techniques couldn't come at a better time. Companies that train their employees using these advanced training techniques invest in a better-trained, more competitive organization.

COMPUTER-BASED TRAINING TECHNIQUES
Task Requirements
Ability to teach a physical skill
However, recent advances in CBT simulations may allow you to teach physical skills using specifically designed CBT programs. If your employees are to be using expensive or complicated equipment, or working in hazardous environments, CBT can provide "practice" via simulations. With simulations, mistakes, and the learning that results from them, will take place on the computer, not on the job.

Ability to provide human interaction.
Social interactions (conversations between people) are very difficult to teach in the abstract. If your trainees are learning how to use English (or the appropriate spoken language) that is acceptable with supervisors, peers, and clients; follow, clarify, or provide feedback to oral instructions; use aural communications devices; or engage in appropriate social interaction with supervisors, the public, co-workers, or instructors, live, lecture- (or conversation-) based training is probably the best training delivery method.



However, recent advances in CBT simulations and video instruction tapes may allow you to use these media for language instruction. And in some cases, CBT or video might be an appropriate adjunct to instruction with human interaction.

Ability to determine and adapt to individual needs.

Assessment is a valid part of any training. It enables the training program to target instruction appropriately. Computer-based training assessments may be best at initially placing and then monitoring students' progress within a curriculum. Workbooks and lecturers may also be able to assess learners and gauge their needs. The greatest value of assessment is the guidance it provides on targeting instruction. Good CBT can adapt to learners' individual needs, providing the amount of instructional support needed. Workbooks and lectures can do this to a lesser degree.

Ability to question students and adjust instruction accordingly.

It is important to quiz students periodically to determine whether or not they are mastering the material, and then to adjust instruction accordingly. Well designed CBT will provide follow-up instruction appropriate to students' responses. Lecturers can also adapt instruction to students' grasp of the course content, but they usually have to target their follow-up to general student needs, rather than to each student's needs. Students using workbooks will probably have to determine what further instruction they might need on their own.

Ability to provide immediate feedback.

It is important for students to know how they are doing and whether they are mastering course content as soon as possible. Immediate feedback can keep them from floundering, or going forward under misperceptions. CBT is best at providing immediate feedback. Workbooks and lecturers may also be able to, though not as well.

Ability to produce life-like images.
Some instruction requires high quality visuals, such as illustrations of machine parts or body organs, to be effective. All of the training media discussed here have that capability, though lecture-based instruction needs some augmentation to provide these visuals.

Ability to produce high-quality audio.
Some instruction also requires high quality audio reproduction to prepare trainees properly. Machine malfunctions might be best diagnosed by the sounds that they make, and the different sounds people make breathing could indicate different ailments. CBT and video are best suited to providing high quality audio, and with augmentation, lectures can provide it as well.

Ability to portray motion.
Instruction using motion can demonstrate how something is to be done, for example, assembling equipment or a piece of furniture. CBT and video can clearly show the action, while texts and workbooks can only show pictures at various points in the process. Lectures can be augmented to portray motion.

Ability to telescope time (time lapse or slow-mo).
Some processes (like the life cycle of a flower) are best shown with time-lapse video. CBT and video can do this extremely well. Conversely, some training may require slowing down time (showing the individual piston strokes of an internal combustion engine, for example). Again, CBT and video do this well.

Ability to use in combination with other media.
Some forms of instruction can be combined fairly easily (lecture with text, for example), some cannot. The ability to combine media may be important if, for example, learners need to master both theory and practice. Textbooks and workbooks are frequently designed for use with other media, while most CBT is designed as a stand alone product.

Ability to use computers.
Computer literacy is rapidly becoming a basic skill all productive people will need to function in society and on the job. If employees are in jobs that require them to use computers, computer-based training can do double duty: both providing the training content intended, and building employees' comfort and facility with computers. If computers aren't yet used on the job, but will be soon, using CBT will introduce employees to computers and familiarize them with computer functions.

Ability to teach more than one trainee simultanously.
If a company has a number of people that need to be trained, it is important that the training media work well with groups. All five of the media looked at in this chapter (computer-, video-, text-, workbook-, and lecture-based training) can teach more than one trainee at a time, though trainees would need to be able to access the computer-based training and textbooks individually, and each student would need his or her own workbook.

Ability to provide team as well as individual study.
At times, it may be appropriate for individuals to learn how to do something as a group, such as analyze production processes in order to improve quality. In these cases, it is best that individuals receive instruction together, so that they can share ideas and practice techniques together. Solitary training media, such as texts and workbooks, are not well designed for team instruction.

Ability to reach trainees remotely.
Trainees may not all be in the same place at the same time. All of the training media discussed in this chapter, except lectures, can handle this situation well.

Ability to access training where needed.
Many organizations are also seeking ways to conduct training without removing employees from their day-to-day job tasks. Again, textbooks and workbooks are most mobile, classroom-based lectures are least mobile. The mobility of computer- and video-based instruction depends on a company's access to computers and VCRs.

Ability to access training when needed.
Many organizations today are looking for a way to train employees when skills are needed. Textbooks and workbooks are most responsive to satisfying the immediate needs of an employee. Lectures are least responsive. CBT and videos can also enable employees to work through an appropriate skill module when the skill is demanded by the job, making them very efficient training delivery methods.

Ability to update & change course content frequently.
If the content of the subject being taught will change frequently, the training media needs to be fairly flexible. If course content is more stable, media flexibility is unnecessary. The lecture format is most flexible, videos and computer-based training least flexible.

Learner Requirements

Different training media are best suited for different learners. Companies need to evaluate their own situations to determine their learners' requirements.

Ability to gain attention & motivate.

If trainees are resistant to training, or the subject matter is particularly difficult, it may be important to keep the trainees' interest and motivate them. CBT and lectures are best at this, text- and workbook-based instruction are worst.

Ability to minimize demands on verbal & reading skill.

If trainees have difficultly reading, text- and workbook-based instruction will be difficult. Video- and lecture-based instruction will be easiest.

Ability to minimize demands on technical skills.

If trainees are not computer literate, it may be best to stay away from computer-based training media. Unfamiliarity with a computer could turn trainees' focus from the substance of the CBT course, to the technology itself. At a minimum, trainees should be able to activate a computer, navigate to an appropriate program and start it, use a keyboard and mouse to enter and manipulate data, and access on-line help.



Administrative Requirements

Some organizations may need to track trainees' progress in order to satisfy an external requirement, from, for example, large company customers or grant providers. Others may want to track progress for their own purposes.

Ability to record trainee's progress.

High quality computer-based training is designed to record trainees' progress. Lecturers can track progress, and workbooks can be checked to track trainees' progress as well. Videos and textbooks provide no means of gauging trainee progress.

Ability to report on trainee's progress.

Computer-based training systems are also designed to produce reports on trainees' progress. Trainee progress records from lecturers and workbooks can be compiled into reports, as well.



Budget

All organizations operate with limited funds these days, and the costs of training media must fit within an organization's budget constraints.

Costs (develoment, acquisition, equipment) must be kept low.

Costs (development, acquisition, equipment) must be kept low. In general, text and workbooks are the most economical training media on the market. Videos usually fall in the mid range, while lectures and computer-based training, particularly when equipment costs are included, tend to be the most expensive. However, off-the-shelf CBT packages can be very affordable, particularly when a company already owns the necessary

CBT IN SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES[ for students]

Computer-based training is any training that uses a computer as the focal point for instructional delivery. With CBT, training is provided through the use of a computer and software, which guides a learner through an instructional program.

Other related terms:

CAI-Computer-Assisted Instruction, and CBI - Computer-Based Instruction. Delivering instruction through the medium of a computer. These are alternative terms for computer-based training.

CAL-Computer-Assisted Learning. Using a computer as an adjunct tool to aid in a traditional learning situation, like classroom training. The computer is a device to assist the instructor during the training process, like a blackboard or handouts.

CAT-Computer-Assisted Testing. Assessing an individual through the medium of a computer. Individuals take the test at the computer, and the computer records and scores the test. CAT is imbedded in most computer-based training.

Most CBT uses one or a combination of the following techniques:

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 should be 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.

HI mam...
Computer-based training (CBT) is, as the name suggests, training that can be delivered by a computer, with or without additional aid from trainers. Initially developed for stand-alone computers, CBT is now more normally delivered over a network.

Airline Pilot Training

A good example is that of commercial airline pilot training.This is a huge overhead for airlines with strictly controlled government standards, not only to train pilots in the first place but also for continued training to refresh the pilots' knowledge and introduce new aircraft, systems or methods. Aircraft simulators were developed so that pilots could train in all weathers, around the clock and crucially, without risking real, expensive airliners.

INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY

Due to the demand in the IT field, there are a number of institutes that computer training to the masses. One institute that has a cutting edge over the others and has provided the market with the best of professionals who have thoroughly impressed everyone at their work place with their skills is jetking. They are known to provide the best computer based training in the market and use a number of techniques to provide the industry with able students when they enter the real work space.

Multimedia Computer-Based Training in Accelerator Physics

Four years ago Whistle Soft, Inc., began developing a computer-based multimedia tutorial for charged particle beam dynamics under a Small Business Innovative Research grant from the U.S. Department of Energy. The DOE chose to support such an activity because of the importance of industrial and medical particle accelerators in the national economy. For example, about 50% of all cancer patients undergo radiotherapy of one sort or another, with the radiation often produced by electron linacs.

We originally designed the Accelerators and Beams tutorials for the academic market, and that is presently where most of our sales are. However, we have always had the idea in mind that we could later customize its separate modules for laboratory and/or industrial usage. This would extend the use of these module to a non-traditional student audience, such as the technicians and operators employed at large accelerator facilities.

hello madam i have searched the computer based training techniques in medical surgery.

In the recent decades robotics and computer science have been
gaining more and more relevance in all aspects of our lives. In surgery, for
example, they gave birth to procedures, impossible to perform otherwise, like
the tele-surgery or the nano-surgery. On this regard, these applied sciences
already play an important role in assisting the surgeon both in the operative
room and, as a support, in the education of young surgeons, but much work has
still to be done.
In fact in these last years we have seen an extreme change in the traditional
training in surgery and the computer-based simulation is one of the main reason
of this shift. The spread of Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) has brought
major improvements in the quality of healthcare, but it has also increased the
complexity of the surgical procedures requiring advanced and highly
specialized training systems. Moreover these training procedures need to be
reiterated during the operational life of surgeons. Therefore, considering the
limited availability of cadavers and the public concern with the non-ethical
treatment of animals, the traditional approaches to surgical training are
drastically limited encouraging the use of surgical simulators based on virtual
environments.
Healthcare industries and the scientific community in medicine agree
indicating the disruptive potential of the application of Virtual Reality (VR) to
the training in the medical field. Therefore the next step is the development of
surgical simulators with an high level of realism in order to practice complex
procedures in a safe environment. Moreover it is decisive that this evolution is
done integrating advanced medical imaging and processing, allowing surgeons
to practice simulated interventions on patient specific dataset.
The increasing importance of MIS techniques will cause a drastic change in
pre-operation planning and basic surgical training. In fact, the features of this
kind of surgical approach (the workspace limitation, the 2D vision through a
laparoscopic camera and the indirect physical interaction with the patient body)
make it possible to use a surgical simulator to train, plan or simulate an
intervention, reproducing the visual and tactile feedback of the real surgical
procedure on a real patient.

Topic-Computer based training
Computer based training is very important to trained the Employees.It is MODERN APPROACH of training.

Examples of CBT

1.UNODC (the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime) has developed computer based training (CBT) on drug law enforcement. As Transnational drug trafficking is a global concern with drug traffickers using latest technologies to avoid detection at land borders, airports and seaports by Customs officers. Traffickers use innocuous couriers and adopt new methods to smuggle drugs. This global training tool applies a problem-solving and interactive approach and is managed by a Learning Management System (LMS). It covers 65 relevant topics, including the review of passport for land controls and airports; behavioral indicators at airports and questioning persons at seaports/airports. The subjects are divided into 5 chapters: i) interdiction techniques for land controls, ii) interdiction techniques at airports, iii) interdiction techniques at sea ports, iv) intelligence and controlled delivery and v) money laundering.
2.A good example is that of commercial airline pilot training.This is a huge overhead for airlines with strictly controlled government standards, not only to train pilots in the first place but also for continued training to refresh the pilots' knowledge and introduce new aircraft, systems or methods. Aircraft simulators were developed so that pilots could train in all weathers, around the clock and crucially, without risking real, expensive airliners.
3.THE APPLICATION OF ENGINE ROOM SIMULATORS
Today, many maritime academies and vocational training centers’ apply engine room simulators in the teaching/learning Process. The objective of this training is to establish a minimum level of specialized knowledge and qualification in global ship traffic. An interactive program has been devised where in trainees have the possibility to familiarize themselves with the system and develop operational skills. Various multimedia techniques of simulation have been applied in this program, including three-dimensional presentations, sound applications, diagrams, pictures, etc. computer-based training (CBT) is being increasingly utilized in maritime academies as a preparatory stage, prior to the use of full mission engine room simulators. The basic role of CBT interactive programs is the familiarization with individual auxiliary machinery and associated systems, prior to the commencement of the operation with the whole engine room plant .The use of CBT modules is especially important in the case of complex marine control systems, where, computer-based training (CBT) is being increasingly utilized in maritime academies as a preparatory stage, prior to the use of full mission engine room simulators. The basic role of CBT interactive programs is the familiarization with individual auxiliary machinery and associated systems, prior to the commencement of the operation with the whole engine room plant .The use of CBT modules is especially important in the case of complex marine control systems, where a perfect knowledge of different operational modes is required.

Good evening mam,
Some of Computer based training techniques:-
1. Food services workers at a hospital:
Interactive computer-based safety instruction (CBI) was given to 73 workers in the food services department of an urban hospital. RESULTS: Post-test accuracy (95%) improved significantly (p < or = 0.0001) from the pre-test (74.5 %), d = 1.09. Generalization was confirmed by increased accuracy in answering questions, posed on-the-job, that required application of knowledge to the work setting (from 46% to 79%; p < 0.0001). Problematic kitchen conditions such as puddles increased slightly after training, but adjustment for increasing production/workload revealed an overall post-training decline in problems from 0.58 to 0.32 (p = 0.0001, d = 0.89). Work practice improvement was seen in 79% of workers (p < 0.0001, d = 1.00). Effect sizes (d) of knowledge, location, and work practice improvements are large and demonstrate that the benefits of CBI extend to the workplace floor. Further, the decrease between knowledge and behavior change (d = 0.09-0.2) is less than reported following other forms of training.
2. AIRCRAFT DESIGN EDUCATION:
• CAI (computer assisted instruction),
• CAL (computer aided learning),
• CBE (computer based education),
• CBI (computer based instruction),
• CBL (computer based learning) etc.
3. Computer Applications in Aviation Training:
• Pilot Training
• Aviation Maintenance Training
• Cabin crew training
• X-ray interpretation training
• General topic training (safety, emergency, security).

Respected Mam,
Given below are two CBT techniques used in Power Generation Sector in particular and one general CBT technique.
Customized Instruction
Power plant operators are required to maintain company standards of knowledge and performance, leading to a growing need for time-efficient operator training methods. In the past 10 years, power plant operator training has evolved from primarily text-based computer programs to sophisticated, interactive multi-media learning aids. For example, a currently available, four-module CD-ROM course called "EPRI CBT" comes complete with video, animation, photographs, graphics, and professional narration. These computer-driven simulation and training tools can be used as classroom aids in conjunction with group training sessions, or to guide tutorial sessions for independent study. In the latter case, the training is done in-house during slow or down times at the tutee's own pace. This tool in particular contains general information about power plant turbines, specific information about some conventional turbines, and customized information about the power plant turbines where the training is taking place.
Users of these tools have found that as they learn more about how operations affect plant equipment, they can make better decisions about start-up procedures and more quickly diagnose problems. As a result, plant staff productivity increases, plant performance improves, and equipment life is extended.
One energy company, City Public Service of San Antonio has been using EPRI CBT for the past year with great success. They are taking their customization capability one step further by setting up operator competency standards based on training test results.

Virtual Control Center
A second method of efficient computer-based training involves sophisticated, realistic emulation of power systems in real time for training purposes. For example, EPRI's Operator Training Simulator (OTS) provides such a realistic copy of an energy control center that operators say it is indistinguishable from the real thing. The transportable OTS operates within an energy company's control center energy management system (EMS). Representation of the control center is exact, with the same displays, consoles, and controls used in the control room. Its models provide real-time simulation, allowing system operators to learn skills that help them operate the power grid efficiently under common and emergency situations. The latter scenarios include some that might not be encountered in a real-world setting for years, but that nonetheless are critical for comprehensive training.
Instructors guide the training sessions, monitor system reactions, and evaluate trainee progress from behind a glass wall overseeing the trainees. Trainees (usually no more than four at a time) see and hear what they would during actual power system operation. In some scenarios, the instructors, posing as power plant or substation personnel, call the trainees or vice versa, to simulate a real environment during emergency procedures.

Desktop Classroom
A third example of computer-based training involves training on a variety of topics that can be done at users' desktops. For example, in interactive distance learning (IDL) systems, students at remote sites use microphone-equipped response keypads to communicate both verbally and electronically in real time with an instructor at a studio site. Students ask and answer questions electronically, while the instructor uses a touch screen to issue formatted questions and activate student microphones. Questions and comments are heard by all the students on the network. This interactivity helps to boost student attention level and interest while providing instructors valuable real-time feedback.
One such program, the ONE TOUCH system, can handle up to 1500 remote sites, dependent on the comfort level of the user and the type of course content being covered. This training method is used for employee training in such areas as management, human resources, sales, marketing, and technical development. Compared to conventional training methods, customers using the ONE TOUCH IDL solution have reported a 100% increase in comprehension and an 80% increase in the amount of content covered.

Most CBT incorporates one or more of these techniques. A training game, for example, might have some of the elements of drill and practice; a tutorial might use problem solving questions. If one or more of these techniques is right for meeting your training requirements, CBT may be an appropriate training method for you.

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

Training Jump Start

Training Jump Start allows you to create CBT with a wide variety of options such as PowerPoint, videos, YouTube, Flash, audio, Web designing , HTML, Word, PDF and more. There is also the option of having users pay to enroll.

Online Teacher:

Online training lets students and teachers work completely on the Internet from any location with computers or other mobile devices. In many cases, a computer and Internet access is all that is required to enroll in a web-based training course. While some courses are just as strictly scheduled as traditional classes, meaning students are required to be virtually present at a specific time and day, others are flexible, assigning work and providing feedback when the student completes the project.

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.

Dear Harleen,
I saw your post and observed that quite a number of students from MBA 1A batch answered your query, just like a project. Looks like some sort of online assignment test in a professional forum.
Anyway you have not mentioned what do you do and why do you need this information?
If you are intrested to want to implement CBT in your organisation, please mention the place and nature of organisation business, employee strength and the places/offices which you want to connect with your HO/HQ and people will guide you to choose & implement the right kind of software.
Have you heard about PeopleSoft eLearning Software used gor this purpose? or OracleApps same software for that matter? That is used a lot by big organisations accross US. Many such inhouse softwares are also available in India. LIke Learning Management System (LMS) used by NIIT to conduct professional courses accross diff NIIT centres at India.
Happy learninig!!

Good evening Mam,

There has been a development related to Computer based Training (CBT) in the area of "driving safety" for older drivers. These days driving has become an indispensable part of the life of majority of individuals crossing the age barrier. Though there are refresher courses available to work on the driving skills but they require a lot of time and effort.

To solve this problem computer based programs have been developed to train the individuals and improve their driving skills. The programs promise to improve the reflexes, focus and multitasking abilities fundamental to safe driving. With the new programs comes a hopeful strategy for keeping "older drivers" on the road in a safe manner—and for longer, allowing them to preserve a function critical to their quality of life.

Unlike conventional simulators, which train drivers by mimicking the experience of being on the road, these software programs use challenging computer games—seemingly unrelated to driving—that target the physical, visual and cognitive skills required to competently and safely pilot a vehicle in the real world. By making the relevant parts of the brain work harder, computer-based driver training aims to bolster those functions.

Hence, these computer based training programs in the form of computer games help in enhancing road safety of older drivers.

e.g. DriveSharp by Posit Science, launched in July 2009, and Senior Driver by CogniFit.

Yours Sincerely,

Deepak Nagpal

Good Evening Mam,

In the computer Based Training some specific computer software used for instructional purposes. Most of the organizations use CBT for training purposes.CBT can be used for formal learning,non-formal learning and informal learning.There are lot many advantages of CBT like availability, pace conformance. It reduces the training cost when training is provided to more employees in more locationsCBT is also very consistence. It cut the classroom and storage space.On the other hand it has some disadvantages also like initial cost is very high and,Impersonal learning environment and sometimes computer unavailability.

There are some computer based techniques which are as under:-

1.)Simulation:-It is computer program that attempts to simulate an abstract model of a particular system. It refers to artificial 3D computer graphics model made to represent a three-dimensional object through the use of specialized software. With this one can experiment a real world situation. This is mostly used to train the pilots.

2.) Testing:- In this pretests evaluate existing knowledge. Training focuses on subsequent deficiencies. Self-test questions are there throughout the program. We can practice also to perform the tests. Post-tests are also there to know about the pattern etc.

3.)Interactive Multimedia Training:-It integrates test, videos,graphics,photos ,animations,sounds. It is self-paced and interactive. One can better understand the things with this.This is most effective system of training.

4.) Demonstration:-

It is used to support the introduction of new information. It is applied widely for creation of instruction books

It is similar to E-book concerning the learning method

5.) Tutorial:-It is : a sequential manner of introducing new information. It is useful for teaching factual information, simple discrimination, rules, and simple application of rules.

Drill and Skill practice - used after initial instruction when mastery of a new skill or information is desired

Problem solving - used to augment higher order thinking skills

IST = Intelligent Tutorial Systems - provide direct feedback to students, without the intervention of human beings, whilst performing a task.

So these are the various CBT techniques

Hello mam.........
computer based techniques :

CBT is the most effective and efficent technique

CBT gives trainers increased control over trining activities.It trains people in specific performance.

By using the cbt abilty to teach more than one trainee simultanously
If a company has a number of people that need to be trained, it is important that the training media work well with groups. All five of the media looked at in this chapter (computer-, video-, text-, workbook-, and lecture-based training) can teach more than one trainee at a time, though trainees would need to be able to access the computer-based training and textbooks individually, and each student would need his or her own workbook.

Costs (develoment, acquisition, equipment) must be kept low.

Costs (development, acquisition, equipment) must be kept low. In general, text and workbooks are the most economical training media on the market. Videos usually fall in the mid range, while lectures and computer-based training, particularly when equipment costs are included, tend to be the most expensive. However, off-the-shelf CBT packages can be very affordable, particularly when a company already owns the necessary hardware

Hello mam

COMPUTER-BASED TRAINING TECHNIQUES

1) Ability to provide immediate feedback.

It is important for students to know how they are doing and whether they are mastering course content as soon as possible. Immediate feedback can keep them from floundering, or going forward under misperceptions. CBT is best at providing immediate feedback. Workbooks and lecturers may also be able to, though not as well.

2)Ability to produce life-like images.
Some instruction requires high quality visuals, such as illustrations of machine parts or body organs, to be effective. All of the training media discussed here have that capability, though lecture-based instruction needs some augmentation to provide these visuals.

3)Ability to produce high-quality audio.
Some instruction also requires high quality audio reproduction to prepare trainees properly. Machine malfunctions might be best diagnosed by the sounds that they make, and the different sounds people make breathing could indicate different ailments. CBT and video are best suited to providing high quality audio, and with augmentation, lectures can provide it as well.

4)Ability to use in combination with other media.
Some forms of instruction can be combined fairly easily (lecture with text, for example), some cannot. The ability to combine media may be important if, for example, learners need to master both theory and practice. Textbooks and workbooks are frequently designed for use with other media, while most CBT is designed as a stand alone product.

5) Ability to use computers.
Computer literacy is rapidly becoming a basic skill all productive people will need to function in society and on the job. If employees are in jobs that require them to use computers, computer-based training can do double duty: both providing the training content intended, and building employees' comfort and facility with computers. If computers aren't yet used on the job, but will be soon, using CBT will introduce employees to computers and familiarize them with computer function.

hello mam ,

Computer-based instruction is being widely used in the education programs of many allied health professions. However, there has been little, if any, documentation of computer-based instruction use in athletic training education. The primary purpose of this study was to determine what percentage of undergraduate and graduate NATA-approved athletic training education programs are using some form of computer-based instruction (ie, computer-assisted instruction or interactive video). We also addressed the following research questions: 1) What athletic training educational software is currently being used by athletic training students and educators? 2) What factors currently impede the use of computer-based instruction in athletic training education? 3) What instructional methods are commonly used to incorporate computer-based instruction into the athletic ) What are the attitudes of athletic training program directors toward the use of computer-based instruction in athletic training education? Surveys were mailed to the program directors (n = 97) of all graduate and undergraduate NATA-approved athletic training education programs. Eighty-six (87.7%) usable surveys were returned. Forty-eight (55.8%) of the respondents reported using some form of computer-based instruction in their athletic training education program; 47 (54.7%) used computer-assisted instruction and 9 (10.6%) used interactive video. Respondents also identified the educational software they use and their method for implementing this software. Software was used most often to supplement traditional instructional methods. A lack of funds was reported to be the primary impeding factor for those programs not using computer-based instruction. Respondents reported an overall positive attitude toward computer-based instruction use in athletic training education and indicated the need for increased development of athletic training/sports medicine software.
