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.
