DATO: Diagnostic Scenarios for Manual Transmissions - Cengage Learning Hosted Printed Access Card  (ISBN-10: 1111034958 | ISBN-13: 9781111034955)

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 ASE Education Foundation's new online standard by providing a meaningful homework solution that reinforces classroom learning. In keeping with ASE Education Foundation requirements, DATO’s LMS capabilities track, record and report each learner's progress.

DATO puts you in the role of a technician employed by "All Tech Automotive." It utilizes Flash animations, a wide variety of interactive features and live-action video to create a simulated but realistic modern repair facility. You'll use available tools and diagnostic equipment, animated instrument panels, and service information to diagnose and repair vehicles. This is same approach used by manufacturers to train their own technicians. To create successful learning experiences, scenarios are presented first in Learning Mode, which offers an array of help features, and then in Challenge Mode, which requires you to perform the repair successfully and fill out a Repair Order correctly. While both modes are timed, only assessment results from Challenge Mode are reported to your instructor.
