Abstract: The article presents the user-centred design process followed to design a user interface for educators to support them in the understanding, generation and usage of recommendations for virtual learning communities. The aim of this tool is to facilitate the involvement of educators when personalising the learning experience for their students, in order to make the educative process as effective, efficient and satisfactory as possible. The user-centred design process described follows the five steps of the information architecture stage and proposes as a result an interaction mock-up for the user interface to support the educator in the management of recommendations.
