Abstract

In our previous work, we presented an interactive learning process in order to increase the students learning motivation and the self-learning time. We proposed an Active Learning System (ALS) for student’s self-learning. For each level (low, middle and high level) class, we showed that the students could keep concentration using our proposed ALS. However, in the group discussion, some students who understood the lecture could teach other students who did not understand “study points”. But, many students complained that they did not feel like a lecture style. In this paper, to solve this problem, we propose a new method for dynamic group formation. After the system decides the level of lecture understanding, the students who did not understand the lecture make the presentation and show the points that they did not understood. Also, the students who understood the lecture explain by presentation the questions or the points that other students did not understand. So, in the group discussion, each group member presents the points that they understood or did not understand. Thus, most of students can study considering their understanding level using above group discussion and they can keep their learning motivation.
