Documentation and Other Support
Some resources for learning and using CogTool are available here, or plan to attend one of the upcoming courses listed in Events.
CogTool User Guide
We strongly recommend that you download and read the CogTool User Guide. The Guide is quite complete, and therefore quite long. However, it is bookmarked, searchable, and comment-enabled PDF, for easier use.
Learn the basics of CogTool by building a prototype of a PDA application and making predictions of skilled performance time.
DRAFT Instructional Videos
DRAFT instructional videos of how to do things in CogTool. A little rough, but you might find them useful.
Examples of CogTool mock-ups and models
This section contains examples of CogTool files for you to examine. You may contribute your own examples to this section, sharing your expertise, tips and tricks directly in .cgt files. Please go to Participate to find out how.
Other potentially helpful materials
This section contains other materials of potential interest. For example, there are links to public talks about CogTool and predictive human performance modeling for design; there is a video of a research version of CogTool presented at an aviation saftey conference. You may contribute materials to this section; please go to Participate to find out how.
The User Forums are the place to bring up questions and get answers from the community. Without logging in, you can read all Forum posts and replies, but if you want to ask your own questions, you need to create an account and log in.
The FAQ contains the answers to frequently asked questions.
If you are using a Mac, CogTool's Help menu will find and highlight menu items for you if you type in a key word. Check it out; its a very cool Mac-native feature (sorry PC folks, we didn't build this, it comes for "free" when you have menus in Mac applications).
Of course, you an always contact us to get help for things you can't find on the site.
