This paper investigates how the instruments of E-Learning Usability Scale adapted in the Indonesian context. The need for adapting the original version arises while assessing the usability of e-learning in a higher degree in Indonesia, namely Student-Centered e-Learning Environment or (SCELE). In the process of usability evaluation, a questionnaire is needed. E-learning Usability Scale (EUS), which is created by Sandoval (2016) will be used as the usability scale. However, the EUS was originally built in the English version and it has not been developed in the Indonesian version. Overall, there are five steps to adapt the usability scale to Indonesian culture which are forward translation, synthesis of the translation from the first step, back translation, consulting to the experts, and reliability testing. The results show that Croncbach's Alpha of the adaptation Indonesian of EUS was 0.922. It can be concluded that the proposed version is reliable to be used by usability researchers. In the future, the adapted version that is proposed in this study is beneficial to help usability researchers, academicians and practitioners in Indonesia while conducting usability testing for e-Learning applications.
