Abstract / Description

This paper presents findings from the usability study that was conducted for the newly developed mobile learning App for the children. The App facilitates the children aged between 4 and 9 of Class-KG and Class-I to learn English with the help of their native language named Sindhi. After the pilot study, actual usability test was conducted with 100 children. In the study, besides usability tasks performed by the children, Smileyometer and Again-Again Table from the Fun Toolkit were also used to assess user experience. The outcomes disclose that the App was very easy and effective as task accomplishment rate was hundred percent. The results from the Smileyometer and Again-Again Table show that most of the children enjoyed the App. There was no statistically significant difference between the baby girls and the baby boys in terms of task completion time which shows that the App was equally efficient for all the children.
