yAn e-Learning support system assisting users decision making
in Economic Educationz
In this research, we consider a new qualitative-quantitative simulator
to help buyers learn how to make decisions when they purchase goods.
We propose an e-learning support system (LSDM) for assisting user
decision making by applying artificial intelligence technology.
When buyers purchase expensive items, they must carefully select
these items from many alternatives. The learning support system
provides useful information that assists consumers in purchasing
goods. We employ qualitative simulations because the output simulation
results are useful. Our system consists of a qualitative processing
system and a quantitative calculation system. When users use the
system, they first input information on the goods they want to purchase.
The information input by users is used in the qualitative simulation.
Next, they supply the details of their budgets, the rate of loans,
and several other factors, on a form. The system then integrates
the results of simulation and the user's input data and proposes
plans to aid in their decision process. The system has several advantages:
it can be used by simple input, the process of simulation is easy
to understand, users can learn how to make decisions by trial and
error, and the users can base heir decision making on synthetic
yiLearningFA Collaborative Learning Support System in Study and
Activity through Investigation and Actual Experiencez
As the Internet develops, it is becoming an increasingly prosperous
network for many types of learning. E-learning has made rapid progress
and an effective form of assisting education. We propose a collaborative
learning support system (CLSS) to study and investigate both in
the classroom and off-campus activities. Users investigate and inspection
the cultural facilities and historical sites using our system and
mobile phones. We report the result of learning based on experiences
and investigations using online web-based authoring support system.
Current web page authoring support systems for pupils have a strong
limitation it is difficult for learners to make their web pages.
We propose a web-pamphlet making support system (WPASS) in which
users can easily build and edit their study notes. The WPASS can
provide services to edit directly web-pages via web browser, and
provide service that teacher can advise to learners thorough the
pages. We discuss the advantage and effectiveness of our learning
support system. The system supports to make a web-pamphlet for users
in experiences learning. WPASS has the following advantages; users
can make and edit web-pages in real time. Users also see and write
about their experiences using mobile phones. CLSS has strong advantages
as follows. (1) Naive users can be experienced in the PC. (2) Users
can make web-pamphlet for their activities. (3) Mentors can advise
on the web-pamphlet appropriately. (4) Users can learn and discuss
ethics of using mobile phones in traffic facilities. (5) Users can
keep records of activities without degradation.
