Abstract

This study aims to evaluate the quality of educational websites focused
on learning support of two degrees of education, Primary School and the
High school. To develop this analysis was used a Model of Evaluation of
the Quality of Educational Websites (EQEWS). This Model divided into
Functional Aspects, with five criteria: Authority, Update, Usability,
Accessibility and Communication; and in Technical and Aesthetic Aspects,
with five criteria: Graphic Design and Multimedia Quality, Content,
Navigation, Speed of Access and Interaction. This model of evaluation
applied to 57 websites, according to the Likert scale of 0 to 4. The
data subjected to statistical analysis with the support of computer
calculation tool SPSS, version 23. Through this exploratory study
concluded that educational websites that had better ranking with higher
average values were affected by High School Websites. We conclude that
the creators of these resources aren't conscience of the importance to
assess their resources from heuristics evaluation, even before putting
them on the Internet. It was noted the failure of the functional and
technical requirements for who conceives, publishes and maintains their
content online, often for lack of knowledge in handling these new
technologies.
