Simunich, Bethany; Robins, David B.; Kelly, Valerie – American Journal of Distance Education, 2015
This study investigated whether "findability," an aspect of usability, is an important component in student perceptions of/satisfaction with online courses and, as such, should be considered more heavily in online course design. Using standard usability testing measures, such as eye-tracking, time-on-task, and think-alouds, participants…
