Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between academic achievement and learning patterns of students using e-book logs. Specifically, we examined how students who maintain good academic achievement link among knowledge of different e-books. We hypothesized that good achievers might access e-books sequentially those were used in the same class session and/or consecutive class sessions, for systematically linking among the different knowledge of related e-books. Logs were collected from first-year students in an information science course at Kyushu University. The present study revealed that the good achievers more frequently linked e-books which were used in the same class sessions than the poor achievers. This result suggests that the good achievers more frequently linked knowledge of e-books which deeply related each other.
