  • Jeffrey A. Cantor


The need to contain the rising costs associated with the production of goods and services has posed challenges for instructional design professionals. This problem is particularly acute within the U.S. Navy’s training commands. The outcome of this challenge has been Navy-sponsored research and development in computeraided instructional design. This article describes some of these efforts.
