Developing an e-Learning Material for Arts Learning

Szu-Hsin Lee, Hui-Ching Tseng, and Yu-Sheng Chen

Abstract—This paper describes the idea of recent advances in graphics and software tools have facilitated the development of visual interfaces based on designing a two-dimensional animation textbook. These interfaces use interactive two dimensional graphics to represent visual and spatial information transformed from the traditional text book, and allow natural interaction with direct object manipulation. Particularly in the educational field, interactive two dimensional graphics offers effective, supporting learning-by doing and case-based reasoning approaches. To gain insight to the target students' perceptions of how the two-dimensional e-Book motivated them came to their understandings of specific content areas, the researchers in this study designed a two dimensional animation unit for the participants. The participants were 4th grade students who learned the topic of Vincent Willem van Gogh (Van Gogh) in their art course. The purpose of this study was to measure the learning achievement of the participants in an art unit when a multimedia form of instruction was used in place of traditional instruction. More significantly, this study purpose provided an opportunity to explore the use of using an e-Book based instrument in the art course among elementary students at the target school, which may contribute to a further sophisticated understanding of digital content instruction for other elementary schools.
