While interactive systems have the potential to increase human work performance, those systems are predisposed to usability problems. Different factors might contribute to these problems during the interaction process and as result, the decision-making process might be compromised. This work uses decision support system methods and tools to assist in the analysis of the usability of a university library website, measuring the constructs of effectiveness, efficiency, and learnability. The pilot study involved thirty-five subjects, and after collecting data, a multidimensional view of the data is created and discussed. Later, a What-if analysis is used to investigate the impact of different scenarios on system-use. The work has the potential to assist designers and system administrators at improving their systems.

Evaluating Usability to Improve Efficiency in E-Learning Programs
Degree of effort employed to achieve a level of competence in completing a task. A system is considered easy to learn if competencies required to use it are acquired after only a few repetitions of the task. The term “learnability” is widely used in the usability field sometimes as a synonym of “usability”. It is fundamental to make the distinction between the usability of a product as it is being used for the first time and usability when referring to more or less expert users.
