Abstract :

Corporations can use the Job Skills Education Program (JSEP), a computer-based teaching program developed for the US Army, to provide basic education for current and future employees. JSEP contains over 300 lessons which address over 200 general skills. The program's major types of lessons teach learning skills, computer skills, and reading and writing skills. To get private companies started, a two-day course teaches instructors the basic operation of a JSEP classroom, and a three-day course teaches basic JSEP computer operations. The benefits of computer-based training (CBT) include immediate feedback on the progress of students; an individualized pace; and a reduction of embarrassment caused by peer pressure.
