The aim of this thesis 'Improving Teachers’ Acceptance of Digital Education' is to investigate how the technology acceptance and learning experience of the digital education platform HPI Schul-Cloud for German secondary school teachers can be improved by proposing and applying a user-centered research and development framework. This thesis highlights the importance of developing digital learning technologies in a user-centered way to take differences in the requirements of educators and students into account. Current research regarding technology acceptance and user experience is stated. In the first part of the proposed user research framework, qualitative and quantitative methods are applied to build a solid understanding of the user, his or her needs, requirements, and context of use. A UX factor analysis is applied to prioritize important UX aspects for students and teachers. Secondly, opportunities for improving acceptance are collected and prioritized according to research criteria from qualitative and quantitative analysis by applying a multi-attribute utility analysis. Thirdly, the principle build-learn-iterate is applied for developing prototypes in different resolutions to learn and iterate on the selected opportunities. Last but not least, measures for continuous UX evaluation are suggested.
