dc.description This research project was a requirement for the Educational Technology's Master's Program at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. As part of the fulfillment, a conference paper was turned in, and the project was presented at the 14th Annual TCC Worldwide Online Conference. en_US
dc.description.abstract The purpose of this project was to develop and assess the effectiveness of multimedia modules assisting the learning of file management (FM) skills for adults at least 50 years of age. Older adults are capable of learning modern technologies but experience anxiety and physiological problems that may interfere with their learning of new skills. The incorporation of multimedia in lessons will provide multiple cues for adults to better understand new information when learning. The target population for this study was adults at least 50 years of age who have very little or no experience with a computer. The sample population represented a demographic cross-section of adults age 50 years or older with variations of FM skill level. Participants were given a self-directed multimedia packet to take home and learn FM. Survey results showed most participants found the multimedia tutorials useful in enhancing learning and that tutorials should be implemented in class lessons for adult beginner computer users. Overall, improvements in both post-test results, and correct completion of a FM activity indicated that multimedia modules were successful in teaching FM. en_US
