"The purpose of this paper is to describe a multimedia presentation of the background information needed to participate in a COBRAS vignette staff training exercise. Vignette exercises provide opportunities for brigade staffs to practice selected aspects of the planning and execution of heavy armored brigade missions. Because each exercise targets a different staff process, participants must become acquainted with the background scenario that provides the context for the activities they will practice. Training materials originally developed for the presentation of this background information were paper-based. To the detriment of the exercise, participants have had a tendency to avoid reading these materials. Multimedia may provide a more stimulating and efficient delivery method, but only if it is well designed. The outline of a multimedia presentation for one of the vignettes is developed using guidelines concerning the structure of the information being presented, sensory modalities suited to types of information, and principles of intrinsic motivation. The paper recommends testing the effectiveness of multimedia for delivering this type of training information."--DTIC.
