Development and evaluation of an online handwritten feedback-giving support system in learning Japanese writing

Abstract

This paper describes the development and evaluation of an online handwritten feedback-giving support system in learning Japanese writing. First, twelve Japanese language teachers were asked to evaluate the usability of the system. Then the study examined students’ perceptions on the handwritten feedback in writing practice. The results show that the system is helpful for teachers to give handwritten feedback, and the students said the handwritten feedback was easy to understand which might lead to a positive effect on teacher’s presence. Although it is a small-scale study, we look forward to create awareness among language teachers on the importance of such paper-like handwritten feedback to students in Japanese writing instruction and the importance of learning to give feedback innovatively and efficiently using new media.
