This project reviewed DELab, a piece of software written in conjunction with a differential equations textbook. DELab was assessed using an industry standard set of human-computer interface usability guidelines. Though the course of the evaluation it was discovered that DELab failed to satisfactorily meet expectations set forth by the surrogate user's interpretation of these guidelines. The recommendations that were generated included restructuring the user interface and improving the accuracy of the help text and instructions.
