    Abstract

    In this study, learning support in a blended learning environment integrated with social media is concentrated on. A method is proposed to integrate the S-UPS (Socialized Ubiquitous Personal Study), which is utilized to collect and manage social stream data, into a blended learning system so as to combine the best aspects of both face-to-face and online instructions for the improvement of learning efficiency and enrichment of learning experience. Based on these, an empirical study is conducted to show the feasibility and effectiveness of our proposed method. Experimental evaluation analysis of the system reveals the enhancement of learning process in the blended learning environment.
