Testing session summary

On the 14th of May 2014 there was a testing session held in the National Museum in Kraków. Two groups (14 participants) were asked to try the prototypes and share their opinion. Here we present the results.

QUESTIONS ASKED:

GENERAL QUESTION FOR THE BEGINNING: What do you think about this kind of e-learning as a complementary learning material?

Do you think it will help you learn?

What advantages do you see in this solution?

What disadvantages do you see in this solution?

Would you use it at work or at home?

What else can we do to help you learn new language?

FINDINGS:

GENERAL FINDINGS (WHAT THE GROUP HAS SAID)

  • they liked the material very much;
  • they appreciated the material is exactly for them, teaching exactly what they need;
  • they told us the material is cool;
  • they told us the material is easy to use;
  • they told us they feel a need for learning foreign languages;
  • they liked they can use it and practice anytime/many times;
  • they don’t have time for it; at home they have other duties, at work they have to be careful and attentive all the time;
  • without being forced to do this, it will be hard for them (discipline);
  • in one group they’ve asked for instrucions in polish;
  • they would like to get printed material in form of crib sheet; short and easy to use;
  • most of them live out of the town so they don’t have a quick internet connection, the material should be light and easy to stream;

GENERAL FINDINGS (OBSERVATION)

  • before letting people use the material, an instructor should show them how to use it;
  • those simulations were hard/challanging for the group;

INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN (WHAT THE GROUP HAS SAID)

  • the answers are too long;

INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN (OBSERVATION)

  • 2 ending slides are confusing -> should be changed to one slide only;
  • some people clicked the sound icon instead of the button (button and sound icon should be separated).
