Interactivity Levels - Levels of Interactivity corresponding to MIL-HDBK-29612-3A Categories of Interactive Couseware (ICW) Presentation:

Level 1
- Basic Information Presentation - This is the lowest level of ICW development in that Level 1 lessons are linear (one idea after another), and are used primarily for introducing an idea or concept. There is little "interaction" other than the student touching the screen or using a keystroke or mouse click to continue. The media used are primarily text and graphics (not complex)

Level 2 - Medium Interactive/Simulation Presentation - This presentation level involves the recall of more information than a basic Level 1 presentation and allows the student to have increased control over lesson presentation; that is, there is more interaction, such as using a light pen to rotate a switch. Computer Managed Instruction (CMI) is used in Level 2 lessons to track and analyze student performance. Level 2 normally combines audio, video, text, graphics and animation.

Level 3 - High Simulation Presentation - This level involves aspects of both Level 1 and Level 2 while using the full abilities of ICW. Level 3 may present onscreen interaction similar to that used in an aircraft simulator. This level provides a high degree of interactivity, extensive branching capability, maximum mediation opportunity (supports multiple levels of errors), real-time event simulation with minor equipment limitations.
