Abstract

In contrast with quantitative usability evaluations, qualitative evaluations are often criticized for not producing statistically significant findings because of the small sample population used in the studies. Using a case study of a good e-learning system, edveNTUre, at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, this paper demonstrates that even with six subjects, we can obtain rich analyses of user interactions with edveNTUre. Well-established theories such as Interaction Framework, Claims Analysis and Structuration Theory were synthesized to analyse user interactions, adding meaning and “depth” to the observational data collected.
