In e-Learning environments, very often a large number of multimedia learning materials are provided and used in combination. Accessing a repository of unstructured multimedia material for learning purposes is still an open problem. In this paper we present the evaluation process and results of using a tool developed for searching and navigating through e-Lecture materials, which we performed on 63 students of a Bachelor's program at the University of Trento. The results show that using such a tool in the e-learning environment can shorten the students' learning time, while achieving similar performance.
