The automated system of knowledge control (ASKC) “Razvitie” is the net program complex for the local area network (LAN).
The ASKC includes:
- The ASKC “Razvitie” — server software with access of the client working places (WP) to the data base;
- The ASKC “Razvitie” WP — is the universal client software, which provides access to the ASKC from any computer;
- Knowledge testing program “Razvitie-Test” — program software for working with tests executed by the “Razvitie” ASKC WP.
The ASKC “Razvitie” is created to assist teachers in organizing the learning process using the electronic tasks. Depending on their goals, teachers create tasks and hands them out to the trainees. A teacher may observe the process of tasks implementation, participate in it and analyze the results.
The ASKC users are divided into three groups: administrators, teachers and trainees. Any user may work with the ASKC from any network computer that has the ASKC “Razvitie” installed (See Fig.1).

The system administrator forms/edits the list of administrators, teachers, study groups, trainees (See Fig.2). If necessary, the administrator adjusts programs of the ASKC. Each administrator has unlimited access to all the results of trainees and for all the teachers.

A teacher is the key link of the system. Every teacher has their own folder with tasks, where they create tasks (See Fig. 3). The teacher selects the tasks intended for the trainees. After the trainees complete the tasks, the teacher can see detailed results of their study and organize a feedback session.

The teacher has unlimited access to the process of tasks implementation performed by one person or a group of learners. The teacher can “spy” upon them or interfere into the task implementation process from their WP (See Fig. 4).

Using the import/export option, the teachers can exchange folders with each other (See Fig. 5).

Every trainee implements tasks of their teachers in accordance with given instructions and can evaluate their own progress reviewing the corresponding results (See Fig.6).

The IPC protocols make it possible to extend the types of ASKC tasks. To do so, the programs that “can” work under the ASKC control and that are capable of implementing proper task (training sessions, interactive education, and demonstration of media-materials) are required (See Fig. 7).

The computer simulator “Detection and killing of gas, water or oil kicks”, automated educational system “Oil and gas well drilling”, automated educational system “Well servicing”, electronic workbook “Well control during gas, oil, or water kicks” are now effectively working under the control of the ASKC.
