The aim of this research is to apply usability evaluation of the Cloud Service Providers (CSP) established for various development purposes, CSP also are used in teaching cybersecurity courses for undergraduate program. In order to apply usability evaluation, two CSP products are used, namely Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure. We have applied usability evaluation method to measure its appropriateness with respect to learning and the use of a product for teaching. We have categorized students in two groups, namely expert and novice. Our evaluation suggests that before using graphical user interfaces of CSP, one should have knowledge and skills in implementing Cybersecurity project.


Keywords – Cloud Service Provider, Usability Evaluation, Cybersecurity, University Learning, Laboratory Learning.
