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.
