The company said Monday the effort to develop the Virtual Intelligent Tutor for the Andragogy of Military Medicine Integrated Skills is done in collaboration with Frank Ritter and Chris Garrison of the Pennsylvania State University.

James Niehaus, senior scientist at CRA, stated that adaptive training systems may help medics in learning the use of new medical technologies and procedures.

The VITAMMINS project will build on intelligent tutoring systems, simulation-based training systems and skill modeling methods, seeking to boost the Army’s medical training quality and reduce costs.

CRA will employ the Methodology for Annotating Skill Trees tool suite to construct VITAMMINS’ skill models.
