Overview

About The Product

DELMAR AUTOMOTIVE TRAINING ONLINE – DIAGNOSTIC SCENARIOS (DATO) creates a rich-media learning experience and challenges learners to master diagnostic and repair practices in 62 realistic scenarios that span all systems areas. To create successful learning outcomes, scenarios are presented first in Learning Mode, which offers an array of help features, and then in Challenge Mode, which requires learners to perform the repair successfully and fill out a Repair Order correctly. Combining sound instructional design with top-quality computer graphics, learners develop critical thinking skills and apply them to real-world customer concerns. Each scenario addresses a simulated problem on a specific vehicle and teaches to use a structured diagnostic process that starts with a customer-stated concern on a repair order and ends with repair verification. DATO scenarios are loaded with videos and Flash animations that simulate a real shop environment (“All Tech Automotive”) and make learning fun; an audio track includes real automotive sound effects for symptoms and diagnosis. DATO challenges students to solve real problems on real vehicles from Ford, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Toyota, Honda and Hyundai. DATO supports NATEF’s new online standard by providing a meaningful homework solution that reinforces classroom learning. In keeping with NATEF requirements, DATO allows for tracking, record and report each learner’s progress.

Features

  • 10 realistic and highly interactive repair scenarios take the student from seeing a customer concern on a repair order to verifying the repair on a specific make/model.
  • To arrive at the correct cause and correction, learners must read and interpret OEM service information and wiring diagrams in selected DATO scenarios and students prove their understanding of wiring diagrams by isolating circuits and applying assigned color codes.
  • DATO's Learning Mode offers support with embedded Help Cues, Tips, Knowledge Checks, Diagnostic Strategy Checkpoints, and selective coaching from Norm, the Shop Foreman.
  • Challenge Mode is an extended test in which the help features are removed. Challenge Mode requires the student to work independently through the entire scenario from beginning to end, complete the repair successfully, fill in Cause and Correction on the repair order without assistance, and achieve satisfactory scores on assessments.
  • Scenarios address and thoroughly teach specific, diagnostic-oriented NATEF Tasks in each course area.
  • Closed-captioning available at the touch of a button for those hearing-impaired.
