Adults aged 60-74 (n=30) and 75+ (n=30) were taught to use an electronic bulletin board system either with instructions (simple) or instructions preceded by a system explanation (expanded). The younger group were better at acquiring and retaining computer skills. Simple instructions facilitated skill development better than the expanded treatment. (SK)
