Australasian Journal of Educational Technology Volume 14, Number 2, ISSN 0814-673X Publisher: Australasian Society for Computers in Learning in Tertiary Education
Queensland Alumina Limited (QAL) and the Interactive Multimedia Unit (IMU) at Central Queensland University (CQU) have recently completed a joint project involving the design, development and implementation of a multimedia training package. The multimedia tutorial forms an integral part of the training curriculum for alumina production workers at QAL's Fluid Bed Calciner facility. This paper describes the progress of the project to date and the current and future strategies for evaluation of the training program. An initial evaluation of learner attitudes shows a high degree of acceptance and enthusiasm for the new package. The quality of the multimedia training materials was recently recognised at 1997 Queensland IT&T awards for excellence.
