Abstract

Learning English by reading articles on multimedia e-book devices can assist students in improving their vocabulary and in understanding the associations among vocabulary, textual meaning, and paragraph composition. Adaptive integration of reading technologies and strategies not only strengthens their language ability and reading comprehension, but it also increases the effectiveness of their language learning. Therefore, this study developed an English-reading e-book system that integrated a guidance mechanism that analyses a student's learning profile and recommends articles according to article difficulty, relevance, and the learner's language ability. The frequency and pattern of learning behaviors as well as the system functions that students used were analyzed to evaluate the performance of the proposed system. The results indicate that the proposed reading guidance mechanism can improve students' reading comprehension and reduce their reliance on the system's translation functions.
