Abstract

This study elucidates issues related to using online vocabulary learning environments with collaborative filtering and functions for cognitive and social learning support in learner-centered learning, which requires learners to be self-regulated learners. The developed system provides learners with a vocabulary learning environment using online news as a test installation of functions. The system recommends news to each learner using a collaborative filtering algorithm. The system helps learners to use cognitive and social learning strategies such as underlining, along with a word-meaning display based on the learner's vocabulary proficiency level. We investigated effects of the system on perceived usefulness and learning performance as a formative evaluation. Learners regarded this system as a useful tool for their language learning overall, but rated several functions low. Confirming the learning performance, the learner's vocabulary proficiency level improved significantly.
