Introduction to VBS Scripting Online Course

The Introduction to VBS Scripting online course introduces scenario developers and content developers to the basics of VBS3 scripting. This course caters to those unfamiliar with scripting concepts and builds upon lessons learned in the Administration Course or the Administration Online Course. In this online course, we will instruct participants in the following topics: scripting fundamentals, interpreting scripts, how to apply scripts, and learning scripts by topic. The VBS3 Scripting Language is easy to understand and master, allowing a user flexibility to add customized content and functionality to a scenario that extends beyond the capabilities of the Offline Mission Editor and Real Time Editor. Whether creating exclusively programmed scenarios or designing sequences of activities and actions based on real events, this course will equip participants with the keys to access and control the powerful VBS3 engine. Students will learn the very basics of developing scripts: variables, script commands, function calling, and more. Using available resources, students will explore different scripting commands, how they work, and how they have are used in common scripts. We ensure learning is relevant to students that want to continue scripting beyond the course. Students develop and explore the important scripts commonly used in training environments today.

Goals

This course focuses on empowering scenario designers and content developers of VBS3 by examining how scripts work, how others use scripts to enhance scenarios or build new content, and allowing them to explore topics that will become essential to them following course end.
