In order to take a part in a particular Web-based training session learners need to work with a number of tools reflecting a particular training strategy. By operating these tools learners access different training objects contained in that training session. Such training objects contain relevant information for their current training task. Nowadays, modern WBT systems support dozens of different, sometimes rather complex tools and provide access to thousands of training objects. In this paper we analyze the problems of user interface that can become a rather complex one in training sessions conducted in such systems. In order to overcome such problems we provide a simple general user interface solution for these WBT systems. The evaluation of the users' responses showed us that there is much more potential in our solution resulting in the evolution of our user interface solution to a simple knowledge delivery tool.
