A Concept Maps Oriented E-Book


Content Design System for Evaluating
Learning Performance
First Name Middle Name Last Name

The teaching materials used by Taiwanese students in class are


compiled by different publishers according to the curriculum outline
established by the Ministry of Education. However, limited by the
layout of teaching materials, it is impossible to incorporate all
knowledge referred by the curriculum outline into teaching
materials, thus, some are selected and some are abandoned. For
example, as the contents can only cover the key points of the
general direction, more subtle knowledge could not be incorporated
to be used as the expatiation among different key points, due to
layout limitations, resulting in relatively weak correlations among
the key points. The students who have poor comprehension may
not understand the correlations, which thereby affect the students'
learning effectiveness. This study suggest that concept maps can
be used by teachers as an aid to design teaching material
characteristics of more correlation and flexibility. Therefore, this
study mainly designs a concept-map-oriented e-book teaching
material design system. First, the teachers plan out the concept
maps of the teaching materials according to their teaching
experience, next, the system connects to the online e-book library,

as based on the keywords on the concept maps, to obtain relevant


information, then, the teachers select the information to be
incorporated into the teaching materials, and finally, the teachers
develop the selected information into teaching materials. Thus, the
students will be able to read the e-book-format files and obtain the
e-book teaching materials through e-book readers. This study
divides the students into an experimental group and a control group
in order to learn different teaching materials and evaluate the
effectiveness of learning, according to test scores after learning,
and the questionnaire of system acceptance degree. According to
the experimental results, the average test scores of the
experimental group are better than those of the control group. Iother words, the teaching materials designed with the aid of
concept maps can improve students' learning effectiveness.
