Abstract

The goal of this study was to evaluate the impact of training and the effectiveness of different types of knowledge retention activities delivered by computer-based training programs. This study focused on a computer-based learning system called the Profound Learning Delivery System (PLS). This study used a pretest-posttest experimental design to compare adult learners' knowledge of Microsoft Outlook ("Outlook," 1997) before and after a computer-based training session. Participants were trained using two different computer-based instructional programs. This comparison involved three different formats for post-instruction retention activities that were; no review activities, user generated review activities, and program generated retention activities. Results indicate that despite random assignment, there was a significant difference between the groups 60 days after training. This result showed that PLS has potential worth exploring.
