Design and Evaluation of the User Interface of Foreign Language Multimedia Software: A Cognitive Approach.
Plass, Jan L.
Language Learning & Technology, v2 n1 p35-45 Jul 1998
Focuses on criteria for design and evaluation of the user interface of foreign language multimedia software. A hybrid model is proposed that combines cognitive and software engineering approaches. Based on this proposed contextualized model of interface design, domain-specific evaluation criteria are developed to describe how well the user interface is able to support cognitive processes involved in development of linguistic and pragmatic skills and competencies in SLA.
