Abstract

We proposed SMALL system seeking for seamless language learning in our previous study [1]. In this paper, we describe how far we have developed the system for the realization of seamless learning. As our first step, we aim to support English vocabulary learning, since vocabulary learning is one of the fundamental aspects of language learning. We also aim to create a knowledge-aware virtual learning community to promote P2P interaction in our seamless learning environment. Before the actual use of the system in a classroom environment, a pilot experiment was conducted, which shows that we need to change some functions in our system.
