This research aimed to improve the degree of understanding and satisfaction of students in Information Literacy classes at a university. The study goal was to acquire spreadsheet and data analysis skills using Microsoft Excel. The classes in 2006 were redesigned with interesting, intelligent and interactive (i.e., ‘3I’) factors. Firstly, an interesting story-based class introduction nurtured students’ curiosity. Secondly, students undertook challenging assignments requiring intelligent answers. Thirdly, submitted assignment files were peer-reviewed by fellow students in an interactive and collaborative learning process. Each student then received a feedback report from the teacher. The research question posed was to investigate to what extent the integration of ‘3I’ factors, into an Information Literacy class, was effective for enhancing students’ satisfaction and learning. The effectiveness of this ‘3I’ trial was examined based on the results of questionnaires and examinations.
