M.A.R.S. : un modèle opérationnel de conception de simulations pédagogiques

Abstract : Our research is related to the domain of Interactive Computer Based Learning Environments, and concerns more specifically the design and production of pedagogical simulations. This thesis attempts to approach the definition of new production environments from a realistic point of view by considering real professional technical training situations in an industrial context. The main result of this work is the definition of the MARS Model (Model-Associations-Representation-Scenario), a conceptual framework that structures the design approach. MARS offers three workspaces dedicated to specifications of respectively the simulation model, the pedagogical scenario and the representation, and a fourth workspace dedicated to integration of the different results. Our wish to propose operational solutions led us to the definition of a development process based on parrallel design activities, each one following an automated prototyping cycle. We also consider the definition of production environments. We insist, for each workspace, on the importance of interfaces and concepts proposed to the designer. We define the architecture of an adaptative integrated environmnent which gives the possiblity to offer different access levels according to the author's capabilities, the technical domain studied, the production context, etc. Finally, we describe a specific environment that we developed for the Hewlett-Packard Training Center, TPEC. The MELISA environment offers to technical trainers a set of methods and tools to create, modify or adapt, rapidly and at low cost, their own simulation applications, thereby solving problems not covered by traditional training methods.
