This paper focuses on evaluation techniques for multimodal software. We suggest how multimodal educational systems can help us and give a proposal for how to evaluate these systems. Our goal is to come up with human-computer interaction (HCI) evaluation techniques for multimodal systems to support affective education and adapt usability evaluation taking into consideration the cognitive walkthrough, the affective walkthrough, the heuristic evaluation and the pluralistic walkthrough. We are proposing two usability inspection methods: the multimodal affective cognitive walkthrough including pluralistic walkthrough with personas and scenarios and the multimodal affective cognitive heuristic evaluation. These are demonstrations of how the proposed MADE framework can be applied to well-known evaluation techniques.
