Abstract

Recent advances in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) have been tremendous. However, the concomitant development of Web-based delivery models has not kept pace and educators know very little about the effects of online delivery. Further there is little systematic investigation of the implications of Web-based Learning Environments (WLE) as instructional delivery and support systems. This study investigated the dynamics involved in the Human-Computer Interactions (HCI) and its impact on student outcomes. The study considered the effects of the visual and navigational aspects of a graphic user interface (GUI) and the learner's individual differences would have on the overall learner's satisfaction with a WLE. In order to document and describe this relationship, this investigation used a qualitative research design, based on observation of task completion in conjunction with a Talk-Aloud Protocols method and open-ended semi-structured interviews methods.
