The purpose of this study was to assess pre-service teachers' perceptions of usability among three different web-based educational platforms. Seventy students from two small liberal-arts universities and one state university were given the R.U.L.E.E.S. usability survey. The usability survey is constructed upon six usability characteristics (e.g., efficiency, retainability, learnability, utility, error rates, and satisfaction). A comparison between eCollege, Blackboard, and WebCT on the usability characteristic scores and global score were evaluated. Main effect results indicate a significant difference between the three platforms on the satisfaction and error-rates characteristics. However, pairwise post hoc analyses revealed no significant differences between the three platforms. Rational and implications of spurious findings are discussed.
