Description

In Ugandan public universities, the usage of learning management digital platforms is low, and we conjecture that this could be a usability problem. Extant literature posits that the users, tasks, and environment analysis are key in designing and developing platforms from the inception stage to the final product launch. The integration of the above factors enables developers to ensure the usability of digital technology. We undertake a user contextual analysis of learning management digital platforms in Ugandan public universities focusing on users, their tasks and environment, and how these factors impact usability. An experimental design will be used to test hypotheses, and subsequent recommendations will be drawn.
