Moodle HQ Usability Study – Follow up research for improving the course administration process #Moodle

Last month, Moodle HQ’s Lead User Experience Designer – Alberto Corado organized a simple usability study for improving the Course Administration process. In a follow-up to the same research study, Moodle team is looking for more volunteers to take part in the usability research study.

In the first round of the usability study, there were more than 300 participants in just under a week, completing the activity. The next round of the usability study will run from Friday 11 August to Friday 18 August. To take part in the study, Moodle HQ team is looking for teachers, trainers and anyone else with course editing rights. The results from the study will help in improving the future Moodle development.

What you need to do to take part in the study?

You need to spend 15-30 minutes in trying out a prototype and give your opinion based on that. A Moodle HQ researcher will set up a remote screen-sharing session with you on your own computer. 

To take part in the current round of study, you need to have:

  • access to online sessions using Zoom meetings.
  • access to a microphone and a broadband internet connection
  • Give consent to Moodle HQ to record video and audio of your interactions using Moodle on your desktop screen.

The feedback during the research will be kept anonymous and will be used to deliver better user experience. If you are interested in participating in usability research study, sign up using the link below:
