Abstract:

"Specific goals of the present research were to 1) report lessons learned from instructors in a distributed blended learning environment; 2) report student reactions to this type of learning environment; and 3) compare the training approaches with those reported for traditional classroom environments. Both the dL instructors and students acknowledged substantial value in the blended approach (video teletraining with computer software) for training digital skills remotely. The students offered some good suggestions for improving the training in distributed environments such as having hands-on training with tactical equipment and additional training aids (acronym list, commander's guide, train-the-trainer materials, etc.). Overall, the findings indicate that the dL instructors were able to adapt to using the technology to teach FBCB2 operations, resulting in training that is very comparable to the traditional courses. The positive student comments and similar training approaches and topical coverage support these findings. Additionally, major advantages and disadvantages of the dL method of instruction are noted. Several specific recommendations for dL instructors were made in the areas of (a) leveraging student strengths, (b) emphasizing problem-centered instruction, and (c) leveraging training aids. The findings contribute to the Army's efforts to enhance blended learning solutions to meet critical training needs"--P. i.
