Abstract

The aim of
this paper is to present a usability and user experience study of a blended
learning, hybrid small private online course, which aim is to introduce
university teachers to digital teaching and learning. The e-learning platform
Moodle is used to host the online part of the course. The goal of the study
conducted at the first phase of a user-centred design process, was to collect
end users experiences in order to inform design choices. User experience tests
were conducted with targeted end users at the beginning of the course (n=6),
and at the end (n=8). A mixed-methods approach was applied, including video
observation, think aloud, task success rate, semi-structured interviews,
screen-recordings and questionnaires. Quantitative data was analysed by descriptive
statistics and the qualitative data was subjected to qualitative content
analysis. The findings of the study highlighted positive and negative user
experiences related to the following aspects: pragmatic aspects, hedonic
aspects, pedagogical aspects, and social aspects. The findings also revealed a
change in user perceptions of pragmatic quality and hedonic quality over time.
