The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) Research Division wanted to develop, implement, and maintain an advanced bicycle-safety-training course for elementary school students. The system integrated the latest distant learning tools, specifically interactive evaluation and testing capabilities. The goal was to deliver a complete bicycle-safety training system on a CD-ROM, which used advanced multi-media features such as video, animation and smart traffic templates to test and evaluate student’s knowledge of the course’s content.

This document outlines the requirements for a CD-Rom based Multimedia Course on Bicycle Safety, sponsored by NJDOT and developed by Rutgers CAIT and ATC Brunswick.
