The increasing amount of learning tools developed
in the virtual room enables more flexible learning; it
can be personalized and reduce distance barriers.
But researchers search to find design guidelines and
user needs that relates to these learning tools. This
thesis follows that path and researches the usability
and learning potential of virtual learning
environments (VLEs) which applies spaced
repetition. A case study was performed in order to
implement the extensive theoretical research
regarding usability, e-learning and learning. The
results generated improvement recommendations to
the company of the case studied VLE. This thesis
contributes to the research field by using usability
aspects and learning perspectives as tools to analyze
VLEs in general, as well as on a specific VLE.
