Abstract

In this paper, we propose mobile-assisted seamless vocabulary learning and present learning scenarios seeking smooth and seamless transitions between learning in-class and out-class, incorporating students' self-directed learning into classroom activities so that learning both in-class and out-class interacts with each other, which is ultimately expected to result in effective and fruitful vocabulary learning. Two experiments using mobile devices are proposed to find out some answers to the following questions: (1) Does the use of mobile devices support seamless English vocabulary learning? (2) Can the additional contents recommended by the system help linking in-class and out-class vocabulary learning.
