Usability is one of the most relevant attribute when evaluating a software product, application or a website, as it is important to analyze how the interaction design facilitates or hinders the user to achieve an objective in concrete. Moreover, the user experience expresses its positive or negative perception of a particular application through a set of factors and elements relating to user interaction. The paper presents a set of heuristics to detect usability problems in u-Learning applications. It also proposes a set of design recommendations focused on the user experience.
