Usability In E-Learning: Instructional design models and Evaluation
Nearly every aspect of modern life involves computers, and education, especially in the form of e-learning, is no

abound and this article focuses on some of the most reputable and widely-used ones. In spite of the many points of contact in
their scope, they differ either in the approach or in some aspects such as the presence of absence of an affective dimension,
for instance. All, however, aim at making the technology which supports the learning environments invisible.
