Abstract

The Irish Defence forces are at present implementing a vehicle tracking and command messaging Software Package called TBMS.

No help functions, lessons or e-Learning packages are available for this software. It is envisaged by developing an e-Learning artefact TBMS training will be enhanced adding to better implementation.

From April to May 2006 two courses have been conducted in the CIS school. The first course consists of 10 students who are traveling to Liberia on United Nations duty and the second course will consists of 16 students enrolled on a Communications Operative course and who have to complete TBMS training as part of their syllabus. To demonstrate the effects of the e-Learning artefact, each course has been divided into two groups. One group completed the training in a face-to-face mode facilitated by a tutor. The second group used on-line training with help from the tutor available through e-mail. Results will be measured.

Initial results suggest the artefact will enhance training, reduce training time and budgets. A full TBMS course will be created and conducted through e Learning for members of the forces who need to do this training.
