There have been various articles and news items in the training press about the application of new computer technology to training. Most of these have emphasised the hardware element. By this I mean what the equipment is and an excessive concentration on the superficial impression given by the initial impact. We have all read that video disks can provide immediate access to a still frame anywhere on the disks and that the quality is fantastic but nobody seems to be answering the question, how do I go about trying it out, or maybe is it really a commercial idea for me anyway? Video disks are only one aspect because the new technology includes a whole range of communications equipment. The clue to the likely training applications is the computer: a word which strikes terror into the heart of many otherwise confident human beings. This is a new series of articles aimed at the practical training and education practitioner who wants to know more about the applications of the new technology with a view to having a go.
