Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, v16 n4 p284-93 Dec 2000
Discusses cognitive load theory and describes a study that investigated how undergraduates learned the basic commands of a CAD (computer-assisted design) software package using manuals with different formats of presentation of instructions.
