- The Canadian Forces (CF) is adopting a comprehensive approach to operations, which is based upon effective joint, interagency, multinational, public (JIMP) collaboration within an increasingly complex security environment (Leslie, Gizewski, & Rostek, 2008). From the military's perspective, one relatively new aspect of the comprehensive approach is an increased and explicit focus on collaboration with members of the local population in theatre. The development of cultural knowledge which enables interaction with the local population is fast becoming a focus of military research. Defence Research and Development Canada - Toronto (DRDC Toronto) was asked by the Directorate of Civil-Military Cooperation (DCIMIC) to conduct a preliminary evaluation of a software program entitled "Operational Language and Culture Training System" (OLCTS), created by Alelo, Inc. This software is currently in use by a number of Canada's allies (e.g., the United States, Australia, the United Kingdom) and is focused on the acquisition of language skills and cultural knowledge relevant to working among local populations in overseas missions.
