Study Description

The TAC explored various CBT formats and then settled in on macromedia as the platform. Once a platform was selected a MnDOT developed tape based course was identified for conversion and update.

Project updated and converted a video-tap/paper based Geometric Design Course into a computer-based/adobe acrobat based program and published it in CD-ROM (34) and DVD (1 - 9 GB)formats.

Project consisted of 34 lessons.

See updated progress report dated 12/01/2005

Objectives

To pool scarce funding and to use the collaborative process to design, and develop effective learning program(s) utilizing the latest in multimedia and web-based technologies.

Scope of Work

34 lessons have been distributed to the 22 particpating states via CD-ROM and/or DVD's.

Project is essentially complete with three minor changes to be completed and then the project will be closed subject to sufficient funding being available.

Contract No.: DTFH61-98-J-99022

Two lessons of a GeoMETRIC Design Course have been developed and will be sent to the other States looking for additional participation and funding that will allow for the development of more courseware. "GeoMETRIC Design In Metric" was chosen as the launch project because MnDOT was in the process of developing a video training system on the subject (MnDOT used over $1 million in state funds for the work). The technical committee has decided to proceed by using project funds to complete the remaining 32 lessons through a work order with the MnDOT and to explore other potential topics. One topic of great interest is what role can this project play in facilitating the TRIS updating process. This potential use will be explored at great length during various TRB meetings. All learning products will be able to be used via CD-ROM and the Internet/Intranet.¿At the last TAC meeting, a need was identified to locate existing video-, computer-, or web-based training lessons for topics in two subject areas: 1) Bridge Inspection and 2) Construction Inspection. We would appreciate hearing from anyone who has knowledge of training materials available in these subject areas. Our interests include any training or technical assistance materials you consider outdated, where this project could possibly contribute to refreshing and updating those materials. We hope to have enough information at our next TAC meeting (October) to make decisions on where to focus project efforts in the development of computer-based or web-based training and technical assistance for bridge and construction inspection. Please send materials on bridge inspection to Joe Orth at jorth@rci.rutgers.edujorth@rci.rutgers.edu and materials on construction inspection to Kevin Alano at kevin.b.alano@odot.state.or.us.
