The Virtual Truck 2001-01-2800

A study examining the problems and benefits derived from the development of a fourth generation CD-ROM learning programme for the truck sector.
Discussion will consider two key criteria:
  • The vision Intuitive learning programmes based on real world imagery and expectations. The techniques used to retain the learner's interest, and facilitate personal motivation.
  • The development process of a learning programme which uses previously un-attempted levels of imagery, and the promotion of active learning and learning by association.
The key to the development will be the design of a minimal text interface termed ‘The Virtual Truck’, which uses real world visual prompts to guide the learner. This constitutes a platform onto which learning materials are integrated to present a “packaged” learning product, as appropriate to specific market requirements. Such learning materials will present technically and visually advanced learning packages within anticipated Internet capabilities to the year 2003.
