Abstract : In 1981 a training research team was contracted to conduct a two-task survey to determine the potential of utilizing the Hand-Held computer for training purposes as a job training aid in the school environment. The purpose of Task I was to survey the relatively new market of available HHC and assess their capability to serve as a generic delivery system for training purpose. Task II of the study was to survey selected Army MOS and report specific training segments which could be more effectively taught using the HHC.
