Abstract

When E-learning was first introduced to the Internet it was called Internet Based Training, and then Web-Based Training and you will still find these terms being used with some variations and is now generalized to E-Learning. The basic purpose of E Learning is to deliver knowledge to the user or to share information that assists users of the E Learning software to learn from a multitude of subjects now available through online Mobile or Native downloadable applications which use advanced interactive software tools which deliver very effective and efficient interactive activities for learners who wish to avail of this technology.

However, applying Usability testing principles to an E-Learning applications has significant information to collect in how learners use the E-Learning applications which will show satisfaction levels, efficient results and effective evaluation reports that bring to the front all aspect of how well a software product delivers it knowledge from a learners point of view.

This research document aims to use Usability testing methods to gather information from learners of an E-Learning Software application that accompanies this research document which in turn with analyse the data gathered and report on it's findings using standard usability tests.

Moreover, the document also intends to use the results of the analysed reports to suggest ways that the E-Learning application can be modified if necessary to benefit the learners by adopting new techniques or learning methods to the E-Learning software.
