The purpose of this study was twofold: 1. To investigate how Computer Manuals are designed. 2. To prepare an Instructional Package that would be helpful to teachers in preparing overhead transparencies. Computer Manual Design was researched to help determine the components that should be included in the Instructional Package and to help determine how this package should be evaluated. The major emphasis was a review of the literature on computer manuals and how manual design could be improved. The Instructional Package produced contains the Print Shop Users' Club Software, directions on how to produce transparencies, and specific directions on how to use the various Print Shop and Print Shop Companion Menus to print graphics and text for use in the transparency making process. The Instructional Package was evaluated by teachers in the field who used a questionnaire that was developed to determine the strengths and weaknesses of the package. The results of the questionnaire were used to revise the Instructional Package into its final form. (See Appendix E: the Instructional Package which accompanies this paper).
