Software Learning Strategies and Perceptions of Rural Individuals
There are more options today than ever before for learning complex software, ranging from professional courses, to in-application documentation, to community-generated content posted online. While prior HCI research has focused on ways to support software learning, we know little about the experience of rural software users. We are investigating perceptions of software learning strategies of individuals living in both urban and rural communities with the goal of creating more inclusive technologies.
