Multi-step Annotation to Promote Reflective Learning with a Mobile Phone.
ABSTRACT The current Japanese society makes people bring mobile phone all the time and some university officially admits students to use it in the lecture. This paper proposes multi-step annotation environment using mobile phone as a trigger to start reflective learning. In the lecturing time, only thing to do is marking the important slide of the power-point by way of e-mail on the mobile phone. After the lecture, a student, who is the author of the e-mail, has to fulfill the annotating content marked by the e-mail. This paper reports the design and development of such a system.

ABSTRACT: Many universities officially permit their students to use cell-phone as an input device in lectures. Considering this situation, this paper proposes a multi-step annotation function using a cell-phone as the trigger to start reflective learning. Using the proposed system during the lecture, students are required to mark the important slides via the cell-phone e-mail. This e-mail is synchronised to the respective slide automatically through the time stamp. Then, the student has to fulfil the annotation content marked by the e-mail after the lecture. This paper describes the design and development of the system, including the observed results of trial uses.International Journal of Mobile Learning and Organisation 01/2008; 2(2).
