Abstract

"This thesis proposes a research model to evaluate computer-mediated learning technology, user acceptance of the technology, and the effect of the technology on learning outcomes. This thesis also introduces two innovative research techniques for such evaluations, that is, eye-tracking and the think aloud protocol. Think aloud protocol allows us to understand a user's state of mind while he/she is interacting with the system. Eye-tracking provides additional insights into a user's cognitive state while using the system and can help triangulate the results. We demonstrated the application of the research model and research techniques in evaluating visualization software designed in a project funded by the National Science Foundation"--Abstract, page iii.
