This paper describes the literature search effort instituted by small group of university academic and staff personnel assigned to assume software training responsibilities for 2,400 university faculty and 1,200 staff and the resulting training materials products and processes developed internally based on the literature search to meet these needs. The result of the effort has been extremely successful and is fully documented, described and illustrated. The training material content, aimed at identifying learner outcomes in terms of work product completion rather than software feature exposure, and the rapid method for design and development of training materials lends itself to productive collaboration and work-sharing among training staff and a high degree of consistency of result. Further research explorations focused on this method and its products are identified.
