This study intends to present an evaluation of usability and accessibility, which required the creation of a multimedia prototype named F.R.e.e. – Prisoner’s Training in e-Learning, related specifically to training their “Job Search Techniques”, under the project (e-Pris) e-Learning in Prisons.
We have built a multimedia prototype using a conventional model of instructional design, ADDIA. This model demanded the planning of the multimedia prototype, the elaboration of the materials and of the usability tests, with the experts and with the users whose characteristics are similar to those in the target group, as well as the preparation of the accessibility tests.
While assessing the usability of F.R.e.e., the multimedia prototype, by those replacement users mentioned above, we have verified that learning to use the prototype (Learnability), executing all tasks efficiently (Efficiency) and with satisfaction (Satisfaction) was easy. The prototype has proved to be also somewhat prone to errors (Errors). Nevertheless, we have not properly assessed the memorizing skills’ parameter, related to the ease of remembering the prototype’s functionalities (Memorability).
The evaluation of the accessibility has allowed us to make further improvements to the use of the prototype, not just for the users with special needs, but to all the users.
Keywords: Usability, accessibility, multimedia prototype.
