Conference paper Open Access
Today’s society especially in the western world is marked by life-long learning, because of an increasing technology development primary in Information Communication Technologies and because of an increasing need of up-to-date experts. In contrast to urban regions, the education in rural areas often is only possible virtually. Therefore, a various number of e-Learning Systems exist, that are oftentimes hard to use especially for less computer experienced users. For providing a facilitated access to e-Knowledge in such e-Learning Systems this paper describes an approach for developing an easy usable and understandable portal that furthermore aims to achieve a positive emotional feeling. These emotional aspects, subsumed in user experience, are a necessary factor if the user should be motivated and supported during his learning process.
