Abstract

The learnability of a software user interface is an important aspect of software design. This study evaluates the learnability of an instructional game entitled Justice Bao. It attests issues related to "button-less" interface that uses an object on screen as a "clickable" object for various functions. It also highlights some issues with regard to the use of text labels to instruct users on the functions of a "clickable" object. Some guidelines in the design of button-less interface are suggested.
