Design and evaluation of the user interface of foreign language multimedia software: A cognitive approach

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

This paper is concerned with criteria for the design and evaluation of the user interface of foreign language multimedia software. A hybrid model is proposed that combines a cognitive and software engineering approaches. Based on this proposed contextualized model of interface design, domain-specific evaluation criteria are developed to describe how well the user interface is able to support the cognitive processes involved in the development of linguistic and pragmatic skills and competencies in SLA. The application of these criteria is demonstrated using the multimedia software CyberBuch/Ciberteca.
