Abstract
There is a shortage of personnel in rural counties adequately trained to provide direct care services to persons with disabilities and chronic health conditions. The purpose of this study is to learn whether computer-integrated training can adequately teach job skills to participants with less than high school academic achievement, without high bandwidth Internet access, using minimal multimedia and at a cost that is commercially viable.
