  3. USER INTERFACE PRINCIPLES • USER INTERFACE IS A WAY A COMPUTER PROGRAM COMMUNICATES WITH THE PERSON WHO IS USING IT.

  4. EIGHT MAIN PRINCIPLES OF THE USER INTERFACE • CONSISTENCY • CLARITY • CONTEXT • NAVIGATION • SEARCH • PERSONALISATION • LEARNABILITY • FLEXIBILTY

  5. CONSISTENCY • THE INTERFACE DESIGN IS IN HARMONY AND THE SAME APPLIES TO ALL SCREEN IN A SOFTWARE. • Every user interface uses the same words or commands perform the same functions.

  6. CLARITY • CLEARNESS OF LABELS ON ALL ICONS TO MAKE THE SYSTEM EASY TO UNDERSTAND • Developer should use relevant icons or graphics to indicate the information. • Icons, word or commands should be clearly labeled so that users can understand them easily.

  7. CONTEXT • EVERY PART OF A LESSON SHOULD BE RELEVANT TO A PARTICULAR TITLE. • Ideas presented need to relate to the title.

  8. NAVIGATION • USERS CAN MOVE AROUND THE MENUS, HELP FILES OR OTHER SCREENS IN A SYSTEM. • It should be clear on how to exit or proceed from screen to screen in a program

  9. SEARCH • THE SYSTEM ENABLES USERS TO SEARCH KEYWORDS OR GLOSSARY. IT SHOULD PROVIDE MULTIPLE WAYS FOR USERS TO MAKE QUERIES BY GROUPING OR SORTING. • The system should provide users a preview in order to get a word in the correct page.

  10. PERSONALISATION • THE USERS CAN MAKE THEIR OWN PERSONAL OR INDIVIDUAL LEARNING • Users can choose their display options.

  11. LEARNABILITY • THE SYSTEM PROVIDES SUPPORT INFORMATION AND HELP FILES TO MAKE THE SYSTEM EASY TO UNDERSTAND. • Support information is important, especially in helping the user to use the system.

  12. FLEXIBILITY • A USER HAS THE AUTHORITY TO NAVIGATE THROUGH ALL THE SECTIONS WITHOUT ANY LIMITATIONS • For example, the user is allowed to access any of the lessons, sections and pages of the program.
