Abstract

Usability testing on Ilmu (i.e. WebOPAC for children) showed that poor graphic design contributed the most to the usability problem. Three main issues of graphic design are layout, use of colors and human visual perception. A design approach is formulated in an effort to develop a conceptual design that specifies children's requirements and preferences on graphic issues. This involves two main activities which are identifying children's preferences on graphic design and generating design ideas using participatory design method. Four categories of requirements and preferences on graphic design are derived from children. Each category is demonstrated by design ideas. All these constitute towards the formulation of a conceptual design for children's WebOPAC interface and become the basis for redesigning Ilmu's interface.
