The Nominal Group Technique (NGT) is a structured process to gather information from a group for their priority setting. This technique is very useful and effective in generating a large number of new ideas to solve problems specifically in e-learning courses. The researchers have conducted this technique in the final phase of their research about the development of web-based activities in learning Arabic collocation and identify the usability of that application. Therefore, this article has two purposes: (1) discussing what Modified NGT is and how to implement it as evaluation tool in e-learning application; and (2) describing the findings of usability evaluation using this technique by providing qualitative data generated during a workshop led by the researchers. This study contributes detail procedures to the researchers and learning material designers by drawing a proposed rule for evaluating educational products in terms of their usability.
