Development of CBT"s for Ministry Of Defense, Singapore, (1997-99)

Client: MINDEF, Singapore.
Company: Raffles Software & Singapore Technologies.

I was working as an Instructional Designer developing courseware’s for Raffles Software, a subsidiary of Thakkral Brothers in Singapore in collaboration with Singapore Technologies. The nature of work is to develop CBT’s for the Singapore Air force to train different schools more effective with the help of interactive learning methods.

This involved getting sufficient content material and to device appropriate strategies depending on the level of training requirements. To design the Screens, check the given Content (Audio script, Photographs, Graphics and Video script), design Navigation and Interactivity. Further the CBT is to be implemented by testing with the Target Trainees On-Site. This involved constant interaction with Subject Matter Experts/ Target Trainees through phased out periodical presentation with the relevant Squadron and Agencies for approval.

I shot all photographs and relevant videos required for all courseware’s besides my primary responsibility as an instructional designer.

I was onsite in Singapore for a year for understanding the development process, methodology, familiarization with SME’s. Later all the design development happened from India as an offshore development process.
