ABSTRACT
The organisation of information in a web site is more useful if it adapts to the way the user thinks and behaves. This is especially important in e-learning sites, where usability is directly linked to the way the user learns. The best way to manage an intuitive and easy-to-use web site it is to organise the site as the student would: that is, following the way the user thinks and manages information. One method is to apply the card sorting technique based on observation of how the users form groupings and associate a predetermined number of categories. In this paper the authors present the results of applying this technique to an e-learning project at the University of Granada (Cevug). Sixty people were studied as they organised twelve categories included in the WebCT platform and a quantitative analysis was made of the results by different statistical techniques: clustering and MDS.
