In 2010, Entellieq (previously IR-Technologies) was the support contractor for Global Combat Support System -Marine Corps training, which required the development, delivery, and maintenance of 34 courses, as well as hundreds of system simulations and training aids. Additionally, the training material had to stay current with enterprise systems (and government policies) that are constantly evolving.
Entelliteq invested in top-notch eLearning tools, curriculum developers, and expert trainers to get the job done. The outcome of our investments was successful. GCSS-MC training was delivered on time and on budget to tens of thousands of Marines and civilian employees world-wide both online and / or on location using closed-network Mobile Training Suites (MTS).
Over the years, Entelliteq’s professional training team has engineered a development and delivery process tailored specifically for government and defense customers. The process, dubbed Just-In-Time-Learning (or JITL), consists of Entelliteq’s talented video production crew, eLearning developers, simulation developers, and Train-The-Trainer (TTT) staff who build and deliver award-winning training products world-wide through a secure Global Content Delivery System (GCDS).
The genesis of JTIL came from a research project awarded to Entelliteq by the National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS), which is the premier organization for the development and implementation of quality training programs in both national security and leadership.
NCMS funded Entelliteq (previously IR-Technologies) to design and prove that a process, tool set, and team that could develop, support, and maintain excellent training products rapidly within narrow time frames e.g. between the time the new or enhanced system enters government testing and its release for use. The project was so successful NCMS has awarded additional funding to expand the JITL process and capabilities.
Entelliteq’s training teams consists of cross-trained resources, which allows managers to matrix team members across products and development phases with strategical precision.
At project inception, one or two team members gather general “learning” requirements and branding elements, such as logo’s, fonts, and color pallets. Then the requirements are analyzed and baked into a proof of concept (a.k.a. pilot). Next, the customer stakeholders and Entelliteq’s Product Development Manager use the pilot to finalize the scope and requirements. Then the developers work in direct collaboration with the SME’s to ensure accuracy and functional congruency of the content produced.
JITL’s success begins with a small but professional video production crew capturing Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) teaching subjects on camera. These SME videos provide credibility and expertise, and help to materialize course structures and refine learning objectives rapidly.
Next, the SME videos are assembled into HTML5-based LMS and SCORM compliant eLearning courses. System video demonstrations and “hands-on” simulations are provided in each course to re-enforce concepts and skills. And finally, scored knowledge checks ensure learning is both challenging and interactive.
