Abstract

This study focuses on cognitive methods Walkthrough to measure the usability of SPIN interface design. SPIN is an interactive online teaching and learning system that can be accessed by lecturers and students of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) through internet. The existing SPIN interface design is difficult to access because of the different user interaction styles when browsing information on SPIN. A "low-fidelity" prototype to the new SPIN interface was designed based on the design of conceptual models that have been produced. Walkthrough cognitive methods applied in this study involving a small group of professional designers and developers to evaluate the prototype interface design new SPIN. Result of this study is a prototype of SPIN "high-fidelity" interface which can be accessed by multiple groups of users.
