ADVISOR Training Design module provides a step by step approach for conducting Training Media Analysis (TMA) or Option Analysis to identify the most cost effective strategy for the delivery of training and generates Training Plans. The analysis takes into account limitations, instructional design requirements, upfront and recurring costs over training program life as well as risks associated with the introduction of new technology. Read brochure.

Features & Benefits
4. Module 2 - Increase throughput

Preliminary Analysis

Quickly assess the feasibility and potential savings that may result from using alternate delivery options.

14. Module 1 - Maintain Aligment

Alignment Analysis

Link Learning Objectives in existing courses to operational requirements using a drag and drop function to identify activities that are no longer relevant.

13. Module 1 - Minimize Duplication
Object Analysis
Identify and group Learning Objectives with similar characteristics based on Bloom’s Taxonomy to speed analysis without compromising integrity.
7. Module 1 - Objective Analysis
Media Analyses
Identify and rate viable delivery options for each Learning Objective by mapping instructional requirements to the capability of each media. Reasons for rating of each delivery option are automatically presented.
2. Module 1 - System Analysis

Development Time Analysis

Forecast the time needed to develop one hour of training for viable delivery options based on industry averages.

Cost Analysis

Store common measures such as hourly rates of developers, instructors and support staff; equipment, simulators and facilities costs, in Templates to quickly forecast and compare costs, personnel and resource requirements of viable delivery options over training program life cycle.

2. Module 2 - Conduct Multiple what If

Risk Analysis

Assess readiness to introduce new learning technology, highlight potential risks and corrective actions needed.
8. Module 1 - Knowledge Skill Gap Analysis

Training Plan Creation

Setup Lessons, assign and rearrange Lessons and Objectives with ease using a drag and drop function.

8. Module 2 - Configure

Facilitate Configuration

Align with CFITES, MIL-HDBK-29612-2A or DSAT requirements in a single click, or set-up in-line with needs.
11. Module 1 - Speed Data Collection

Speed Data Collection

Collect data from Subject Matter Experts offline through custom-built Excel spreadsheets and upload to ADVISOR in a single click. Exchange data with systems through xml.
3. Module 2 - Facilitate Collaboration

Facilitate Collaboration

Store all data in a centralized database accessible anytime and from anywhere by team members with only a Browser; and track changes made by each individual.

Speed Analysis

Minimize the number of media analyses to be performed without compromising integrity, by grouping Objectives with similar characteristics based on Bloom’s Taxonomy and analyzing as a single entity.

15. Module 1 - Minimize Training Creep

Facilitate Reusability

Store common measures such as hourly rates of developers, instructors and support staff; per diem and travel costs; etc., in Templates to quickly forecast and compare money, personnel and resources needed.

2. Module 3 Minimize waste

Minimize Costs

Conduct what if scenarios in minutes to assess the impact of various blends of delivery options, build versus buy, use of internal versus external personnel, and so forth.

1. Module 3 Meet client Needs

Preserve Integrity

Generate audit trail with one click to track where each requirement has been addressed.

7. Module 2 - Generate reports

Speed Report Generation

Produce Objective and Media Analysis, Cost Analysis, Training Plans and dozens of reports in a single click.
