SILVA, Inês et al. Satisfaction and usability of an information and communications technology in nursing education: a pilot study. Rev. Enf. Ref. [online]. 2019, vol.serIV, n.21, pp.143-150. ISSN 0874-0283.

Background: The literature suggests that interactive educational tools can improve the teaching-learning process. Objective: To evaluate the usability and satisfaction capability of a technological platform, designed for nursing students, used as a support tool to learn the procedures related to patient positioning. Methodology: A study with 2 cross-reference evaluation moments was conducted. One hundred and twenty-two students enrolled in the 1st semester curricular unit of the Undergraduate Degree in Nursing, answered a questionnaire, for the assessment of the satisfaction level regarding the currently used model (with no access to the platform). Seventy-eight students enrolled in the second semester had access to the educational platform and gave their opinion on the efficacy, relevance, and responsiveness of the platform. Results: The students considered the tool useful. The overall evaluation had a mean of 8.01 (on a 0-10 scale). Conclusion: The correct use of the virtual learning object proves to be useful for the teaching-learning process, contributing to better learning and indirectly to the excellence of nursing care.
