Abstract

This paper explores the usability of e-learning websites, with particular reference to foreign language learning. Notions and concepts of usability are analyzed, and a definition of 'pedagogical usability' is proposed. The key issue is whether there are aspects of pedagogical usability that are discipline-specific. The paper examines the way in which language learning and teaching, in particular Technology Enhanced Language Learning (TELL), has approached usability as an area worthy of consideration when developing technology-enhanced learning materials. We propose three elements of a research agenda that should be taken forward - pedagogical usability, intercultural usability and website evaluation - to generate a more complete picture of what constitutes usability in language learning websites.
