Development of a Kanji Reference Tool and its Moodle Integration

Edukanji 2.0: Design, Development and Implementation

Alessandro Mantelli    Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia, Italia    



Due to the COVID-19 emergency, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice has reorganized a large part of its courses for on-line delivery through the LMS Moodle. Unfortunately, this platform, besides having a particularly complex interface to use, does not have modules dedicated to the teaching of Japanese. Addressing this issue, this paper proposes the design of a module for kanji teaching integrated with the Moodle workflow, to produce complete and printable kanji sheets with all the necessary information, thus reducing teacher workload. The methodology used derives from an Instructional System Design development model (SAM, Successive, Approximation Model) that allows continuous feedback from the teacher, so as to adapt the developed prototype to his/her teaching needs.
