Visual Interface Design Tool for Educational Courseware

I. Goldfarb and I. Kondratova (Canada)


Visual user interface design, educational courseware, multimedia, rapid prototyping tools.


This paper describes a research study that focuses on analysis of different approaches used in the development of educational multimedia products. Within the study, the inherent need for the "client-centered" design approach, in the development of educational software, was noted. A new approach to user interface development, that utilizes a visual interface design tool, is discussed. The tool is used to help development teams quickly produce the first draft of the "look and feel" user interface design and discuss it with the client. This tool could potentially save time and money, which is currently being spent by educational courseware development companies on the preliminary interface design.
