  2. 2. * Acknowledgements This work is in collaboration with Sr. Margaret Wong and her team in St. Paul Convent School (SPCS). Some of the features covered in the subsequent presentation is suggested by the SPCS team.
  3. 3. An Overview… Our inLearn System for Interactive Learning  Introduction  System Features  System Architecture & Web 2.0  Future Work
  4. 4. About inLearn inLearn is targeted to reshape learning experience through increasing “interactivity” between teachers and students thru’ predefined “activities” such as surveys or quizzes to initiate discussion !! User-friendly Help Facility ! Registration For LOGIN ! Brief System Descr.
  5. 5. A Glimpse of inLearn Multi-lingual supports ! Instantly Updated Discussion Using Web 2.0 !!
  6. 6. System Features  Web 2.0 technology (AJAX) is integrated into various functions of our inLearn system.  Instant data analysis for students’ feedbacks/answers.  Real-time discussion forum for students or teachers to exchange ideas in answering questions. Discussions can be recorded for later reviews.  Different Types of Questions (M.C., fill-in-the- blank, etc.) supporting Various Subjects.
  7. 7. Interactive Discussion  Students (and even teachers) are able to exchange with each other while they are attempting or analysing certain questions.
  8. 8. Different Question Types  3 different question types : multiple-choices, fill-in-the-blanks, and scatter-plot-based questions are available at the moment.  They can be mixed in each set of questions.  Each question can be defined with or without a model answer. For an open-ended question (without a model answer), it will be automatically treated as a survey question in our inLearn system.
  9. 9. Other Functions in inLearn  Backend database stores all the users’ answers for further analysis and generation of real-time result distribution charts.  [User-Admin Function] : A well-defined user hierarchy system to manage guest, student and teacher accounts.  [Course-Admin Function]: Easy-to-use facility for uploading users’ info, questions, and simple user interfaces to edit questions.  Full supports on any O.S. platform including the Microsoft™, Linux or MacOS (iPod or iPhone).
