Government agencies are turning to online presentation formats for computer based instruction related to distance
learning. CBT lends itself well to innovative visual curriculum and realtime information sharing. The educational /
training implications that combine computer technology, the internet, email, and telecommunications are
enormously untapped. CD Rom, online student / instructor interaction through chat rooms, or both are utilized.
Material is presented in text supported with voice overs, and graphics. While writing screen text, voice over scripts
should be written simultaneously, and graphics last. Lectures can be conducted online supported by video
telecommunications. A final online exam is provided at the completion of each course with follow up sessions
scheduled depending on course content. Presentations are suitable for newly enrolled student course material as well
as recertification or ongoing certification requirements of the particular agency.
