The Human Brain tutorial, implemented within a Netscape World Wide Web (WWW) browser, is based on a teaching package on the structure and function of the human brain which forms part of the Open University course SD206, Biology: Brain and Behaviour. This implementation parallels the CD-ROM-based version of this material which uses the Scholar's Desktop, designed by the Biodiversity Consortium (UK), to create and deliver multimedia tutorials. The tutorial uses Netscape in the context of a remedial teaching system. The student is given fine-grained diagnostic tests based on concepts on the human brain. Depending on the performance in these tests the student is allowed to browse through relevant material using Netscape. The aim of this collaborative study, between the Open University (UK) and the National Centre for Software Technology (Mumbai, India), was to evaluate the Human Brain tutorial formatively by (a) measuring, both qualitatively and quantitatively, the usability of its interface, identify problem areas and report on these; (b) measuring the effectiveness of the pedagogic structure supported by the WWW page metaphor in delivering the subject matter; and (c) collating and analysing post questionnaire data from students on their interaction with the tutorial.
