College of Aeronautics (WAERO)
Computer-Based Instruction
This course addresses the design, development, and evaluation of instructional software as it applies to the aviation/aerospace industry. Students are offered practice in the systematic design of computer-based instruction, with emphasis in tutorials, drill and practice, and simulation. CBI lessons are developed using available authoring systems.

This course facilitates students in understanding the theory and practice associated with the systematic design and production of effective W/CBT. Students will learn strategies for assessing training needs, selecting e-learning instructional mediums, developing e-learning instructional mediums, and implementing instruction in aviation/aerospace organizations. Particular emphasis is given to training pilots, maintenance technicians, flight attendants, ground service workers, and flight operations workers.

Upon course completion, students will be able to:

1. Understand and apply terms, concepts, and models of Web/Computer Based Training (W/CBT) and e-learning.

2. Analyze the different types of e-learning mediums to address instructional goals.

3. Evaluate and apply the principles of instructional design for planning, developing, and producing multimedia computer-based instruction.

4. Evaluate the implementation of synchronous and asynchronous e-learning.

5. Develop flowcharts and storyboards as part of the developmental process of W/CBT lessons.

6. Develop a W/CBT lesson that effectively provides learner interaction through a multimedia rich presentation and provides for the assessment of its associated instructional objectives.

7. Develop critical analysis skills to evaluate the effectiveness of emerging e-learning environments.

Upon course completion, students will be able to:

8. Demonstrate appropriate selection and application of a research method and statistical analysis (where required), specific to the course subject matter (effective July 1, 2013).

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
