Abstract

This study has conducted a user testing based on the student's and lecturer's experience using the Moodle application. The main focus is the Moodle application as an e-learning platform in a local college .A user testing method was used to identify problems and possible solutions that could best improve the current Moodle application. The data gathering technique employed was focus group interviews. The findings from the analysed results show that the usability issue encountered by both users that holds the highest average mean was the layout design. The results also prove that the current Moodle application needs to be amended for its interface. The recommendations for interface design were furthered discussed and described, together with the adaptive user interface techniques that can best implement the interface.
