E-learning, One Course at a Time: a Usability Study of the UNC Library Course Pages
This study tested the usability of course pages designed by the Instructional Services Department at UNC Libraries. Course pages are tailored web pages developed by a UNC librarian for a specific course to highlight resources and services available through the UNC Libraries for that course. Students can access these pages from a link within Blackboard, the course management system used by UNC. The study found that course pages are more effective in allowing students to access library resources then the library home page. The results also suggested a few changes that need to be made to optimize the usability of the course pages.
