What are some examples of digital learning tools where you felt the “user interface” (how you or learners interacted with the tool) was the reason for it working so well or failing so poorly.

Based on my own learning experience, I found that some online communication apps or tools like Messager (Facebook) and WeChat are useful and effective for learners to use to interact with each other, share ideas with each other, and engage in active learning experience.

In my opinion, the kinds of digital communication and learning tools are important and useful because they provides a quiet and privacy platform for users to communicate, discuss questions, and share ideas with their peers, instructors, and other people in the world. From the “user interface”, I felt that some….
