Abstract

E-learning systems now currently existing almost using the mouse and keyboard to interact with learners. Apart from learners should waste time to learn how to manipulate the mouse and keyboard and also increase their cognitive loads on learning tasks. In the case of the teacher marking corrections on students' homework, the teacher need to correct the same questions again and again by each student, and the teacher usually can only find whether their answers were right or wrong. In particular, when the answers were wrong, it is difficult for the teacher to understand the problem solving process and to grasp the bottlenecks the students encountered. In this study, the authors develop a pen-based system to assist students in mathematics problem solving. The system can record problem solving process and in peer assessment process, students can review the record by each other. The preliminary results showed students can use the system more naturally and learn different problem solving methods from the peers.
