Individual essays address topics such as the utilization and perceived benefit for diverse users of health care applications, software engineering practices and the context of end user development, end user development and meta-design, models of system reconfigurability by end users in e-learning, enterprise system training strategies, perceived source credibility and compliance with IT recommendations, and studies of the effectiveness of e-banking options for elderly customers. Chapters include abstracts, illustrations, tables, and notes and a volume-wide compilation of reading resources is provided. Contributors are academics and researchers in computer science and engineering from American and European universities and technology firms.
