Computer uses in education are proliferating – there are studies on using computers to enhance teaching and learning in almost every field, every age group. The majority of these studies are comparisons of traditional methods vs. computer-based formats, but rarely anything on the methods and strategies of teaching computer application software. The general impression seems to be that teaching of computer software does not need any technology support. As a result, the repository of teaching strategies is limited, teaching techniques are not systematically organized, and research on their effectiveness is lacking. This study analyzes the most current trends in software teaching/training in both academic and industrial settings, introduces the latest technology of process capturing software, compares the effectiveness and efficiency of different tutorial formats, and explores for a new teaching approach for computer application software based on the guidelines provided in the Cognitive Load Theory.
