The grasp of main ideas as a learning strategy and activity can have various benefits on learners in different instructional objectives, such as reading comprehension, memory, and discerning the main points of reading content. A necessary condition for grasping main ideas is determining the importance of sentences [2]. Thus, this study attempts to explore the interaction of a reciprocal teaching digital annotation automatic matching system with teachers and learners, and how it affects learning activities. This study hopes to assist teachers in using computer systems to quickly assess how student groups are marking important points, and uses the computer to automatically evaluate the similarity between class markings and teacher markings, so that the teacher can have a general idea of how students have different markings from the teacher. This is used to understand students' learning conditions and the distribution of their markings for later instructional discussion of important points, so that learners can receive better learning guidance in a limited period of time. The concept of the system in this study can allow the teachers and teaching assistants to provide timely assistance to learners in the teaching and learning process, and provide suitable support, with the objective of "internalizing" the development of learner ability development. The whole system concept proceeds in a digital learning environment, and serve as a learning motivation for learners and a direction for instructors to improve their teaching, so that they can achieve the purpose of offering individualized teaching.
