AbstractThis paper discusses issues related to design approaches used by software development teams to create user interfaces for educational software. A research study that focuses on the description and analysis of different approaches, used in the in development of educational multimedia products, and their impact on the overall quality of the final product is discussed. Within the study, the inherent need for the “client-centred” design approach, in the development of educational software, was noted. A new approach to UI development that utilises an advisor tool is discussed. The advisor is used to help courseware development teams quickly produce the first draft of the “look and feel” UI design and discuss it with the client. This tool could potentially save time and money, which is currently being spent by educational courseware development companies on the preliminary interface design, a design that is often rejected by the client during the first meeting.
