Description

The ease of use and learnability of a human-made thing, usually software or website. It usually refers to a specific target user group and a specific use context. In learning, a more "usable" tool imposes less cognitive load on students, allowing them to focus on content, not the tool itself. The term is primarily presented here to differentiate it from accessibility.
