HUMAN-TECHNOLOGY INTERACTION - Accessible Interfaces Design in Spanish University e-Learning Platforms

N. Lloret Romero, L. Fernandez Aquino

Abstract

At the moment e-learning platforms are being applied in the University studies of ascending form. The objective of this work is to analyse the e-learning platforms of different European Universities, to analyse their user interaction capacities and the degree of accessibility developed in these platforms. Interaction in e-learning platforms is vital for potential users; in many cases the bad development of these platforms encourages the abandonment of these studies. Starting off with this hypothesis, we develop an evaluation study of the interaction of e-learning platforms in European Universities and we study the degree of interaction with the user, we also consider the level of accessibility developed according to W3C standards.
