One of the major issues related to EUC is training individuals in colleges and in businesses to adopt to the new technology. This study is motivated by the issues created by end-user computing (EUC) and its growing importance within organizations. As a result, both researchers and practitioners are challenged to find new ways to train end users. Researchers have studied a number of key variables such as training support, delivery techniques, and individual differences that can be manipulated to enhance training program design in response to this challenge.
