Abstract: This article investigates the usability of a navigation support tool developed to guide learners in a lifelong learning environment. The navigation support tool generates advice on the best next step to take in an e-learning course following completion of a course module, and was evaluated in a largescale experimental study based around an online Internet skills course. This article follows on from the experimental study and examines learners’ evaluation of the navigational support. It uses automatically generated logs of completion of course modules and learners’ answers to online questionnaires to give insight into learners’ evaluation, learners’ adherence to the advice and selfefficacy information. The article describes the theoretical underpinnings of the work, the experimental setup and results, and draws conclusions to refine the navigation tool and to increase adherence to the advice.
