Abstract

Nowadays, the success of distance learning environments via the Web depends mainly on a well-designed user interface because teachers and learners are physically in different places and time. So, it is a great challenge the instructional interface development process for distance education courses offered in these environments. The goal of this paper is to propose a planning and methodology strategies to develop interfaces using the Multiple Intelligences theory accounting ergonomic recommendations and usability. It is also presented an application of the proposed methodology in the discipline Natural Sciences in Education I of the Pedagogy Program of CECIERJ Foundation/CEDERJ’s Consortium, one of the six bimodal undergraduate courses elaborated from a partnership between the government of Rio de Janeiro State and six Public Universities in Brazil.
