A Moodle Usability Study

In August 2015, members of the Moodle community, including staff from Moodle HQ, were involved in a usability study hosted by the University of Minnesota. Using state-of-the-art facilities the study was able to closely observe the actions of users who represented a range of abilities. Participants were asked to complete a set of basic teacher tasks that were suggested by community members. The study was revealing and identified improvements that could be made in the user interface for course sections and organisation, messaging, navigation, user lists and more. In this presentation, the study will be described including the preparation, context, participation and impending changes.

A report on the study is given here.
