Abstract : A research program compared computer-based and programmed textbook-based curricula for training students to troubleshoot digital logic circuits. The curricula contained identical theoretical material arranged in identical, logical formats, but the students in the computer-based curriculum received experience in troubleshooting and interacting with simulations of digital logic circuits driven by the computer, while the students in the text-based curriculum used diagrams of digital logic circuits and written explanations in lieu of demonstrations and troubleshooting exercises. The results are discussed. (Modified author abstract)
