Abstract

The literature of learning processes is reviewed in relation to end-user computer systems, focussing on the learning required from the user before he can use the computer system effectively for the execution of his tasks. The main objective is to present the human-factors knowledge relevant to the improvement of a system at the design stage. Man-machine interaction with computer-based systems is a well-defined cognitive activity, which turns the focus of interest of ergonomics away from the physical aspects of this interaction.
