The mEducator Best Practice network implemented standards and reference models in the field of e-learning to develop innovative solutions that enable specialized state-of-the-art medical educational content to be discovered, retrieved, shared and re-used across European institutions. Its target groups include medical students, doctors, educators and health-care professionals. A number of innovative assessment methods, including scenario-based assessment for usability testing complimented with data from online questionnaires, interviews, screen capturing and automated tracking of activity are currently designed and utilized for the evaluation of these solutions. This paper reports on the preliminary findings of usability testing of an instantiation of an mEducator solution (Drupal) conducted by 35 graduate students of an e-health course at an EU university. Usability testing was conducted through scenarios referring to creating, sharing and retrieving medical educational content using mEducator. Implications for designing scenario-based assessment to target different user groups are offered.
