Technology in HRD.
This document contains four papers from a symposium on technology in human resource development (HRD). "COBRA, an Electronic Performance Support System for the Analysis of Jobs and Tasks" (Theo J. Bastiaens) is described as an integrated computerized environment that provides tools, information, advice, and training to help employees do their jobs. "Perceived Barriers to Learning over the Internet" (James J. Kirk, Harold Shoemaker) reports on a study of 764 individuals' perceptions analyzed by age, gender, position, organization size, computer knowledge, and prior online experience. Results reported in "E-Mail Mentoring: Boundary Spanning for the Distance Learner" (Toni Powell, Betty Hubshman) show that mentoring enabled graduate students to interpret the online system more accurately and span transactional distance. "An Organizing Scheme for the Uses of Software Technology in HRD" (Carson R. Arnett) presents a taxonomy outlining purposes for the following stages of HRD software use: analysis, design, development, implementation, evaluation, and management. (KC)
