Abstract

The Internet and web environment allow readers to read online many multimedia books. Readers can annotate, collaborate, and discuss content using efficient reading functions. Reading is migrating from printed books to e-books. This study designs an online reading environment with a wide range of support to increase students' learning performance. Online knowledge and human resources are used to answer directly students' queries. Students' annotating behaviors are analyzed as to help them understand the results of their learning earlier on. Experimental results reveal the extent to which students' reading behaviors shift from the printed book to this system using online reading time analysis. Data and questionnaire results show that students think that the system is conveniently and efficiently for them to annotate and propose query strings to knowledge repository and to discussion forum. In assessing reading performance, analysis of students' annotation results can forecast examination grades with 75.5% accuracy. Such analysis helps teachers and students to increase teaching and learning efficiencies.
