This paper presents techniques found useful by the author to assist with microcomputer instruction. The rationale, along with a procedure for installing lessons onto a diskette are discussed. Batch-file-driven menu systems are introduced which can be used to automate the printing of lessons and to display messages for the microcomputer-using student. Methods are given for installing sounds in these batch file menu systems to get the attention of students.
