The use of interactive whiteboards and tablets has been pervasive in educational environments all over the world. After examination of related literature, various systems were used in the studies, but the usability tests with the actual users were missing. This study addresses the evaluation of a classroom management system (V-Class) working in accordance with interactive whiteboards and tablets. This study aims to evaluate the usability of the system used by high school teachers and obtain the experiences and evaluations of them. Usability results showed that the system has some serious design and critical technical problems. Interview results showed that the system was good and beneficial for the lectures, easy to get used to and not very difficult to manage. The participants thought that the system was easy to use and access when compared to other technologies, but some of the functions of the system were found to be time consuming.
