We investigated the types of user interfaces effect the human learning by using the improved cognitive model, and found that there are some differences in learning process between GUI and TUI. In GUI condition, many subjects started establishing sub-goals in the tactile control and strategic control modes and stay in them even after the learning is proceeded. In TUI condition, on the other hand, though the subjects use the same strategy as GUI in the initial term of learning, they found the other strategy and become to utilize it in the late term of learning. In this strategy, when they face to the difficulties to establish sub-goals, they try to find clues by moving to the explorative mode and attempted to achieve the sub-goal by trial and error.
