Designing User Interface (UI) has an important role in user satisfaction. Students working in Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), experience great difficulties and encounter consumes most of their time attempting to learn an incomplete system design by inexperienced UI designers. The VLE system may contain analytical function and features with poor UI facility, Hence the effective use of the system is hampered causing interaction frustration. These are due to the lack of familiarity of the designing with the basic principles of UI designs in VLE environment. Because of that, identification and categorization of these principles play an important role in promoting VLE system with UI domain. In this paper, identifying and categorizing UI design principles in VLE are investigated and comparison is made between various commonly used virtual learning systems on the web. The outcome of the conducted comparison studies provides a suitable guideline for designers of such systems.
