Abstract: Many teachers are unaware of the benefits of toss juggling. Research studies show an increase in gray matter of the brain as a result of initially learning how to juggle (Driemeyer, Boyke, Gaser, Büchel, & May, 2008). A website was created for Physical Education (PE) teachers in an effort to teach juggling and inform educators of its benefits. A usability study was conducted to improve the overall design and content of a toss juggling website for PE teachers. The purpose of this usability study was to evaluate the ease-of-use, learnability, and user satisfaction of a toss juggling website for 6th-10th grade PE teachers to implement into their classes. The face-to-face usability testing was screen and audio recorded using Voila Capture. Online resources and tools such as Weebly, Google Forms, Google Drawing, and YouTube were used to design and develop the website. The ADDIE Model guided the creation and progression of my website. This study involves a total of six participants who are teachers over the age of 18. Data was collected through a pre and post survey for all participants in order to obtain quantitative and qualitative feedback. A usability protocol script was used to ask the participants tasks and scenarios pertaining to the website in order to make improvements after Rounds 1 and 2 of testing. Revisions made include: removal of the drop down navigation menu; renaming of some of the navigation menu headings; enlargement of font size of headings and text; addition of a homepage video and juggling equipment links; and reorganization of specific content.
