The use of multimedia technologies as training tools. allows businesses to reduce training time, decrease costs, increase accessibility, provide active learning experiences, and increase safety. The Induction Furnace Operational Procedures Unit is a set of eight (8) instructional modules developed for the John Deere Waterloo Works Foundry, Melt Operations Department. These modules were developed for use in the training of employees on the safety and operational procedures for using an induction furnace.
The unit was developed in the format of eight (8) Web-based modules located on the John Deere Waterloo Works intranet, Melt Operations site. Each module is designed as a step-by-step graphical representation of a safety or operational procedure in a storyboard-like format. Post tests are provided for each tutorial as an evaluation mechanism. The instructional unit provides a compact unit of several procedures, documented accurately, and deliverable in a safer environment than the actual work area.
