Usability and observation strategies were employed to find out whether the projects perfectly matched the targeted audience, primary school children.

The lecturer involved, Alex John Stephen said: “I would like to thank Marlene Johnston, Head Teacher at Meiklemill Primary School at Ellon and the children for giving the students the opportunity of testing their CD-Rom projects.

“Analysing the children’s interaction with the CD-Roms is a valuable learning experience for the students.

“Gathered data will help them to evaluate whether the results accurately meet the project brief criteria which were set out in the planning stages with the client, Meiklemill Primary School.”
