Abstract

Interest in the learnability of online educational software has grown in the last few years, in particular with the advent of Web-based Learning Management Systems (LMSs). Despite this, much of the design of online educational software is still carried out without a true understanding of learnability issues. This paper starts with reviewing the learnability definitions in the field of Computer-Human Interaction (HCI). From these definitions it concludes that the learnability of online educational software cannot be approached as a conventional task that can be solved with techniques developed by Human-Computer Interaction. To tackle the learnability of online educational software it must be directly related to human learning. This paper outlines a learnability model based on learning theories and applies it to the LMS ClassFronter used at Agder University College.
