A Method That Makes WBL Anti-ubiquitous in Practice and Its Support System

Noriki Amano
Abstract— "Anti-ubiquitous” is the opposite concept to “ubiquitous” and refers to placing restrictions on time and location. We have conducted research to eliminate the “stagnation in study activities brought about by the ubiquitousness of learning content on the Web” - an intrinsic problem of WBL (Web-based Learning) - and to make WBL more effective and substantial. However, there are problems that are difficult to solve technically and anti-ubiquitouess in WBL is not a simple matter. In this study, we propose, through operational innovations, a method for functionalizing anti-ubiquitousness in WBL and a simple system for supporting end users. Today there are multiple varieties of good learning content, such as OCW (OpenCourseWare) and MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), and significant implications could be seen by creating a method of functionalizing WBL anti-ubiquitousness and providing a support system has major significance.

Index Terms— Anti-ubiquitous learning, web-based learning, learning management system.
