The intent of this study was to determine if financial aid employees use computers to perform daily job responsibilities and if the users seek to improve their computer skills. The measurement tool was personal interviews with five financial aid staff members at a suburban, private liberal arts college. All workers interviewed reported using computers extensively every day. Males were more likely to practice using applications and to learn new programs in the pursuit of work and leisure activities. Numerous studies were done to determine computer use when organizations began implementing technology. Additional research is needed to determine the validity and advantages of continued technological training for users.
