抜粋

This paper describes a student-interactive speaking-listening support system using mobile devices. This system makes use of PDAs (Personal Digital Assistants) as a recording tool. Peer-to-peer interviews and interviews with international students were conducted in communicative English class of 20 university sophomores. The students uploaded the recorded files of interviews to the LMS (Learning Management System) through wireless LAN and shared the files by listening and made summary reports which were also uploaded to LMS. Advantages and disadvantages of the system were discussed. In conclusion, though some weaknesses are pointed out such as battery shortage, instability of wireless LAN, troublesomeness of stylus (small pen), its usability (easy to make recording, easy to upload), mobility, and novelty contribute to successful communicative English class and a combination of PDA and LMS helps make efficient use of class time, and provides effective support for evaluation.
