by Schroeder, Gail M.

Abstract (Summary)
The primary goal of instructional material is to enable to learner to naviqate through the course by identifyingthe course competencies, course goals, grading criteria, and assignments. Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC) has offered self-paced/independent learning courses since 1993. The overall enrollmentfor the 103 courses averages approximately 300 learners per semester. Upon purchasing the course textbook, the learner receives the applicable course packet and they progress through the course at his or her own pace. It is important that NWTC provide a course packet for students enrolled in the software courses (103 course designation) Microsoft Windows course that the learner can easily navigate and locate pertinent information. It is of interest to determine the perception of the students pertaining to the design of the course packet relating to the placement, structure and format of the course packet. The research on the Microsoft Windows course packet will serve as a basis for potentially improving other course packets in order to support students in successfully completion of the course. iii
