This paper describes current work on re-engineering a short technical course in the area of Non-Destructive Evaluation/Inspection (NDE/I) sponsored by Boeing’s Defense and Space Group. The subject of the course is Eddy Current Testing, and is currently taught over a period of two days using traditional view foils and hand-built artifacts. An overview of some of the course material is presented together with how techniques such as task analysis and storyboarding are being used to design interactive multimedia training modules to support this course.
