Interface design refers to the overall look and feel of an e-learning program (Hall, 1997). User interface design is the creation of a seamless integration of content and its organization, together with the navigational and interactive controls that learners use to work with the content (Jones & Farquhar, 1997). The design of an e-learning interface is critical because it determines how learners interact with the presented information (Brown, Milner & Ford, 2001). In an e-learning environment, all e-learning interfaces should be designed to accommodate the tasks of learners while they access information. Lohr (2000) states that learning interfaces are defined as those where communication cues take place between a learner and a learning system.
