    Abstract

    This paper is concerned with the implementation of text-based feedback system. Quantitative feedback approach like "Clicker" has been common to enhance participants' involvement in the classroom and improve the quality of interactivity. On the other hand, there is a common approach to text-based feedback like the use of social networks and bulletin-boards installed in Learning Management Systems. After reviewing limitations of these two approaches, we would like to propose a real time text-based feedback system with focus on the frequency of keywords used by the audience. This paper further proposes "Mind Mapping" feedback approach on the basis of the dictionary used in the system. It is suggested that the implementation of the system in foreign language presentation course in Japan had an effect on awareness and motivation of Japanese learners of English.
