Abstract

This research investigated the effectiveness of using a distance education method with and without a supplemental gaming simulation. One study was conducted over two terms. Two sections, 30 students each, from a Department of the Army School attended by all services and international officers, were randomly assigned to two treatment groups. In each term, Group 1 was administered the instruction with the distance education method and gaming simulation modules. Group 2 was administered the instruction with the distance education method only. Written papers and open-ended interview questions were analyzed qualitatively. Nine separate t-tests were used to quantitatively analyze the data collected. It was found that the students taking the instruction implemented with the interactive courseware supplemented with a gaming simulation experienced a greater level of effectiveness.
