AN INTERACTIVE E-LEARNING SYSTEM FOR IMPROVING STUDENTS MOTIVATION AND SELF-LEARNING BY USING SMARTPHONES
Keywords:e-Learning System, Learning Log, Smartphone, Learning Motivation, Self- Learning
In this paper, we present an interactive learning system, which uses a method of acquiring / utilizing the study records for improving the students learning motivation for learning. During the lecture, the students use the smartphone for learning. The results showed that the proposed study record system has a good effect for improving students’ motivation for learning. For the professors of the university, it is difficult to offer all necessary information to the students. In addition, they cannot provide the information to satisfy all students because the quantity of knowledge of each student attending a lecture is different. Therefore, for higher level lectures than intermediate level, the students should study by themselves the learning materials. In this study, we show that our method of acquiring / utilizing the study record promotes the self-learning of the student. In this research, we carried experiments during real lectures at the intermediate level. The results showed that the proposed study record system can improve the degree of self-learning after the lecture.
