  • The study goal is to develop the user interface design principles to improve the usability of university course management systems. To achieve the goal, a usability study was conducted using a survey questionnaire and usability test. Eleven user interface design principles for university course management system were developed based on the usability study. This study has significance in that student opinions were incorporated directly into the user interface design principles of university course management system.

  • This paper studies on the user-interface design elements for the vehicle interior layout of the Korean AGT(Automated Guideway Transit). These are based on the cultural environment and space consciousness of both ethnic and class differences. This means human- oriented interface design. In order to apply the user-interface design, it is necessary to find the examples of lightrail at the foreign country, and research and analyze their design trend. Then try to combine into a concept of user interface design and interior layout. This study will be expected to apply the Korean AGT as a guide.

  • This study was conducted to develop user interface design guidelines for those who design education software products (web sites or CD-ROM titles). To establish this guideline scheme, international standards, commercial design guidelines, and research papers were surveyed. Especially, ISO 9241 was referred as a basic model of a guideline scheme. First, the research group developed draft guidelines. After that, education software developers, designers, and a user group reviewed the draft and the draft was revised with their commentations. Five components were selected as a primary class of guideline scheme: general principle, dialogue design, user guidance, visual interface, and information presentation. Each component was divided several components as a secondary class. Finally, 45 items were selected as user interface design guidelines for the education software design.

  • Because of the development of digital technologies and information-oriented products, the importance of user interface design and usability are increasing in recent year. So we need a systematic and rational way to measure and manage how effective the improvement of user interface is. The purpose of this study is to develop measurable ‘Usability Improvement Index' which signify how much usability has improved in user interface design. First, I made the framework of measuring and evaluating usability through analysis of existing usability metrics and previous studies. Then, I suggested the process of calculating 'Usability Improvement Index' based on categorizing characteristics of measurable usability and definition of usability metrics. The process is as in the following : measuring the present level of usability, analysis of problems, making alternative user interface design, measuring the improved level of usability, calculating Usability Improvement Index. For verification, the case study on application of Usability Improvement Index to usability improvement of application software of digital camcorder presented. This study is expected to assist 'goal oriented user interface design' and to manage usability systematically.

  • Nowadays, smartphones have become a portable multimedia computer because of a variety of useful applications in our daily lives, which can be downloaded and installed easily in smartphones. Despite of the fact that, however in the IS literature there has been little research on smartphone applications' user interface design. Specifically, there has been little understanding about smartphone users' cognitive functions as a mediating variable in the relationship between the user interface design of smartphone applications and users' work performance with the applications. Thus, the research aims of this study are to examine 1) the effects of the user interface design attributes including simplicity, consistency, and metaphor on the compliance with or the extension of users' mental models representing users' cognitive functions, and 2) the effects of the users' cognitive functions on their work performance with the applications. A survey was conducted and Structural Equation Modeling(SEM) was employed to analyze the data. The results of this study showed that two of the user interface design attributes, simplicity and consistency, strongly affected users' cognitive functions. In addition, users' cognitive functions significantly influenced users' work performance. However, there was no relationship between the metaphors in the user interfaces of smartphone applications and the compliance with users' mental model. This study contributed theoretically not only to explore users' mental models that are rarely investigated in the IS field, but also to add some findings related to users' cognitive functions to the IS literature. This study also can help practitioners to develop more user friendly user interfaces of smartphone applications by suggesting the design attributes, such as simplicity, consistency, and metaphor.
