Focus of Presentation
  • AIM Background & History
  • AIM & Navy Content Development Standards
  • AIM Software Status
authoring instructional materials aim
Authoring Instructional Materials (AIM):
  • Government-owned & managed system used by the Navy to design, develop, update, manage, and integrate training content
  • Provides automated conformance to standards (NAVEDTRA 130B/131B, NAVEDTRA 136/ILE) resulting in efficient, cost-effective development & maintenance of learning content
  • Links learning requirements to work definition based on NETC Job Duty Task Analysis (JDTA) standard per NAVEDTRA 137
  • Links learning content to Interactive Electronic Tech Manuals (IETMs) (S1000D & other formats)
  • Automates identification and notification of potential learning content update requirements based on performance standard & tech datachanges- “Concurrency Management”
  • Streamlines integration of changes into previous learning content baseline with minimum impact (because built on relational database)
  • Supports multiple output methods (paper, PDF, HTML, & SCORM conformant XML formats)

AIM is a mature application & service provider supporting the development & sustainment of 250,000+ instructional hours of formal Navy training content

aim navy training standards
AIM & Navy Training Standards
  • AIM follows ISD rules of the PADDIE model
  • AIM Toolset continues to support traditional NAVEDTRA 130B/131B policy & requirements
  • AIM Team working closely with NETC N74 to support new policy changes:
    • Reusable Learning Object content development rules per NAVEDTRA 136 Standard
    • New JDTA methodology (NAVEDTRA 137) for defining work as the basis for training requirements and learning content structure
  • AIM outputs:
    • Printable Material (PDF)
    • SCORM-compliant XML Files, electronic classrooms, repositories)
    • CeTARS CMS Web service files
    • Database export for use in other AIM systems or content authoring tools
netc policy and supporting tools

NETC Policy and Supporting Tools

* Fully supports ILT objects and supports self-paced objects w/ other authoring tools.

mt continuum prototype project
MT Continuum Prototype Project
  • Strategic Systems Programs (SSP) re-engineering 30+ week training pipeline for TRIDENT Ballistic Submarine (SSBN) Missile Techs (MTs) into blended just-enough/just-in-time ILE-conformant Instructor Led (ILT) and self-paced segments
  • AIM CPM and LO Module toolsets part of SSP’s baseline business process for this re-engineering
  • First major end-to-end design, development, and maintenance project that’s validating and extending CPM/LO Module business rules and data exchange mechanisms
  • MT Continuum team:
    • SSP / contractors - Requirements Owners – blended learning design/ILT development
    • NAWCTSD / AIM team - CPM/LO Module support
    • LSI, Inc. - ISD and self-paced content design/development

aim summary
AIM Summary
  • History of AIM
    • Consistent success in past, updated over time, now extending to blended learning
    • Leveraging historical ROI and TOC reduction
  • One GOTS toolset supporting:
    • Traditional content development/maintenance
      • NAVEDTRA 130B/131B
    • Migration of traditional to new content standards
      • NAVEDTRA 136/137
    • New development/support of blended learning
      • ILT & self-paced
aim summary contd
AIM Summary(contd)

Fills gaps in current Navy Training Environment:

ILT toolset supporting emerging NAVEDTRA 136 standard

JDTA links to learning content

Future linkage between JDTA & Navy OCCSTDs

Integrated JDTA-based design, development, and maintenance of both ILT and self-paced learning content

Automated surveillance capability to drive down significant total ownership cost of learning content

AIM toolset is filling those gaps as demonstrated by MT Continuum prototype project and NETC ETMF
