Abstract

A web-based learning system has been developed to facilitate question-posing, peer-assessing, item-viewing and drill-and-practice learning activities. In this paper, the pedagogical basis underlying the design and development of the system is explained in the light of information-processing theory, social construction of knowledge theory and social modelling theory. A preliminary study to evaluate the instructional potential of the system has been conducted; this has also identified the factors that influence students' use of the system. Results taken from questionnaires and open-ended questions revealed that by enabling students to play various roles such as composers, critics and adapters, the system was perceived as a cognition-enhancing and motivational learning tool by the participants. Data analysis further indicated that various factors worked together to influence the performance of question-posing.
