Development of Training Modules to Increase Usage and Understanding of Agency-Wide Software Programs

The research objective is to develop a training program to assist Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) staff in learning and fully implementing agency-wide software programs. Specifically, this project will create online training modules for at least three programs: ProjectWise, Bluebeam, and CATS. The training program will be modelled after a successful on-going effort (RP17-18) to develop online learning modules for pavement design (AASHTOWare PavementME Software) for the Office of Materials and Testing (a sample video can be viewed at https://www.dropbox.com/s/i6zatlhz57nr1e1/MOD1A_PUB_M_Audio 2.mp4?dl=0). The online module development will utilize Adobe Captivate as the software for creating the eLearning content. Once developed, the modules are expected to optimize and balance work/training hours to allow employees to successfully use these software programs. Another objective conducted in parallel with the training modules development is to update the GDOT Construction Manual to include direction on the organization of content within and use of ProjectWise. This content is absent from the current Construction Manual.
