Abstract

This paper presents the usability evaluation study that has been undertaken for the Augmented Representation of Cultural Objects (ARCO) system. The main purpose of this system is to integrate an enhanced educative and entertaining experience to virtual museum visitors. The aim of the current research is the evaluation of the interface of the system. Users as well as domain experts were recruited to investigate the most effective combination of user-based and expert-based evaluation, in order to elicit the most valuable results. Quantitative as well as qualitative approaches have also been employed, thus providing a framework for a holistic evaluation of the usability of an interface of such kind.
