I have just moved to a new job and am trying out the MAIL, so things may get
confused. The book I have used most often for developing training is a book by
Clark, Ruth Colvin called :"Developing Technical Training". It has great
examples and is a very procedure oriented book that helps be very specific about
how to define what people should learn, etc. It is a very structured approach
with rules for developing tutorials, CBT's but also classroom training.

The STC journal for May also had an article (Second Quarter) call "Principles
and Heuristics for Designing Minimalist Instruction" by Hans van der Meij and
John M. Carroll.

I have used this book for a class I taught at the community college called Local
Area Network. It definitely improved my "lesson plans" even though I ran out of
time to fully implement complete lessons.
