Study examined the effectiveness of computer-based video instruction (CBVI) to teach 3 young adults with intellectual disabilities to perform complex, multiple-step job tasks in a generalized setting. Three multiple-step job tasks that were currently performed by graduate students at a university setting were selected: watering a plant, delivering mail, and changing paper towels in the restroom. All instructional sessions occurred through simulation that combined the technologies of video and computer-based instruction. A Dell Latitude 300 laptop computer was used to teach each job task via CBVI. The instructional program were created using PowerPoint software. Video recordings with sound and digital still photographs of each step for each job task were made using a Sony digital video camera, then edited using Windows Movie Maker and saved in CD-ROM. Generalization of skills was assessed at the actual job site. Results indicated that CBVI was effective in teaching job skills to students with intellectual disabilities and the effects were maintained over time.
