Abstract

Information technology (IT) has led to changes in teaching methods How to improve teaching effectiveness and enhance students’ learning using IT has become an important issue A “flipped” classroom is a blended learning environment that allows learners to study outside the classroom using IT and then interact with the teacher inside the classroom Although flipped classrooms have many advantages some issues such as low motivation prior to lectures remain and should be improved This study proposes an in-flipped classroom to overcome the problems found in flipped classrooms and evaluates this type of classroom using a Database Engineering course in a master’s program This study uses the College and University Classroom Environment Inventory (CUCEI) to investigate the learning performance of the proposed in-flipped teaching environment Moreover how to apply diverse online information to help students acquire knowledge relevant to course work is an important research issue This study adopts conference information a kind of online information as a teaching assistant resource for in-flipped classrooms However as the amount of unstructured and messy conference information expands rapidly it becomes increasingly difficult for students to find the content they need and understand the relationships between complex areas of knowledge Therefore it would be helpful to design topic maps that can automatically analyze conference knowledge information and relevant content This study classifies course topics using text mining technology and then extracts the relationships between topics using the proposed method Finally topic maps are visualized to help students easily query and browse information The proposed method is expected to provide students with more complete learning resources and improve their learning performance
