A Critical Approach to an Adaptive User Interface
Teija Vainio and Mikko Ahonen
In our study we present a critical approach to usability issues
and usability evaluation particularly involving adaptive user interface
design for mobile learning environments. We describe some design
challenges for adaptive user interfaces and key usability issues
in the MOBIlearn project. In addition, we compare these challenges
with three different learning approaches.
Our hypotheses are that the learning approach used in most usability
studies is not clearly defined, and, influences of different learning
approaches are not considered enough in usability evaluation. Our
aim is to develop usability of such mobile systems that are based
on more than one learning approach.
