The present study aims to evaluate the usability of the Online Instructional Multi-Media Discussion Environment which was developed in the Department of Computer Education and Instructional Technology (CEIT) at the Hacettepe University as part of a doctoral thesis. The study was designed as a case study and conducted with 56 CEIT senior students. The results of the research are considered to be significant as they could both help the people responsible for the design of sites and their contents, and form the basis for further usability studies in order to develop online instructional multi-media discussion environments.
