Abstract

We developed a training protocol for elderly participants of a home telemedicine study, grounded in prior usability research. The training aimed to reduce barriers in developing system mastery. Our findings are indicative of both the promises and challenges involved in bridging the digital divide. Sixteen participants of a diabetes study were trained to use the computer applications.
