While at D2 TEAM-Sim (D2), I lead the team that designed and developed the Interactive Multimedia Instruction (IMI) training portion of the Steptoe Group LLC's proprietary and patent-pending Warrior-Centric Healthcare Training (WCHT). The training was implemented for the Warrior Transition Unit (WTU) and its cadre; which comprised primary care managers, nurse case managers, social workers, clinical nurses, medical specialists, physical therapist, occupational therapists, squad leaders, platoon sergeants, company commanders, and Warrior Support Center personnel at Walter Reed Army Medical Center (WRAMC), as well as other medical training institutions.
The IMI that was developed is being utilized for the 3, 6 and 9 month sustainment training for the WCHT course. I identified the COTS solution (Media Symantics Character Builder) that was used to develop the virtual characters (avatars) who represent various case study subjects, and married voice-over audio to the virtual characters to produce pseudo-realistic animations and visualizations. Using a proprietary software development tool, D2 Interactive Multimedia Instruction Framework (DIF), we designed and developed the interactive course that is both Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) conformant and is compliant with Section 508 of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
