Project Summary for 1999-LT-VX-K006
Eastern Kentucky University (EKU), in cooperation with the State of Kentucky's Department of Criminal Justice Training (DOCJT), and Advanced Systems Technology (AST) will develop and deliver computer based training modules designed to provide an alternative to residential courses. Courses to be developed include the collection of DNA evidence, Officer Ethics, School Safety, and Survival Spanish. The diverse topical areas will provide for testing the efficacy of Computer Based Training (CBT) for different types of curricula. This effort will evaluate the development and delivery of computer based training (CBT) modules designed to provide an alternative to residential courses for small and rural police departments. The overarching goal of this project is to lay the scientific groundwork for the development and evaluation of cost effective and learning effective interactive multi-media instructional tools that can be delivered using technology.
