Abstract or Description

High-fidelity e-learning preserves the quality of the educational experience while minimizing or eliminating the need to be in a specific place at a specific time with a live instructor. The principles of this type of learning include personalization, multimodality, lean-forward learning, collaboration, accessibility, modularity, progress tracking, and balancing control. The SEI ' s Virtual Training Environment (VTE) is an example of a high-fidelity e-learning success. The VTE was developed to draw upon the principles of high-fidelity e-learning to provide high-quality learning with infinite scalability. The purpose of this document is to describe the tenets of high-fidelity e-learning, to describe how VTE reflects these, and to summarize how organizations have used and are using VTE.
