Abstract . A navy’s mission is to provide fully trained, supported and effective maritime forces for the protection of its citizens, the nation and allied interests. In order to accomplish its mission they are in a state of continuous training. Given a wide range of tasks, strategic vision must involve significant physical, logistical and intellectual agility. The purpose of this paper is to examine current technologies with recommendations for their selection and use to effectively support learning. The contents of this paper will be of interest to institutions and industries engaged in distance learning and skills maintenance.
