A Usability Evaluation of Graphical Modelling Languages for Authoring Adaptive 3D Virtual Learning Environments
Adaptive three-dimensional (3D) Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs) offer many advantages for learning, but developing them is still far from easy and is usually only done by specialized people. However, involving teachers in the development of learning material is essential. One way to support teachers in authoring adaptive 3D VLEs is the use of domain specific modelling languages as such languages provide a high level of abstraction. In addition, graphical languages are recommended for non-technical users. Although such an approach, i.e. graphical domain specific modelling languages, seems to be promising there is a need for evaluating this in practice. Usability and acceptance could become a problem because the authoring process could become relatively complex. This paper reports on a pilot evaluation performed to evaluate the use of graphical modelling languages for designing (i.e. authoring) adaptive 3D VLEs.
