1. Evaluating the GroupOn Website 2. Introduction User evaluation is an important exercise that can be used to evaluate the overall user experience. A user evaluation exercise enables the researchers to establish if the shortcomings of the search engines as provided by the website portal users are valid and the major developments that need to be established to improve the search experiences. The major problem with the exactness is that it can only be effectively utilized by advanced users, who have understood what they are doing. On the downside, most internet users have little idea over what they need while carrying out internet searches.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
