Abstract: The rapid growth and widespread adoption of e-learning technologies with human interaction has sparked a revolution in learning styles. The present study utilises this revolution to enhance human interaction and learning styles by designing a real application of an e-learning user interface (ELUI) that allows users to benefit from the effects of online interaction. Quantitative and qualitative data were collected through surveys and semi-structured interviews to measure students and teachers' perspectives regarding usage of the ELUI. The findings indicated that students were satisfied with the new features added to the suggested e-learning interface. The interview with teachers enhanced the study by further validating the overall high satisfaction among their students. The results provide students, teachers, academic institutions and developers some guidelines on the design and implementation of the future e-learning system. This is particularly so when embedding the interactional communication features for learning purposes through interactive learning settings.

Keywords: e-learning user interface; human-computer interaction; student satisfaction; teacher perspective.
