Abstract

The purpose of this study was to explore the assessment of college students' learning feedback and the applicability of employing concept mapping instruction for nanometre-related courses. In this research, the data obtained from both qualitative and quantitative research methods revealed the following five essentials: 1) the study has successfully developed a computer-mediated courseware for concept mapping instruction, 2) students had significant positive attitudes towards the courseware design; the instructor's teaching method; and the impact of concept mapping instruction, 3) students affirmed the effectiveness of computer-mediated concept mapping instruction because of its ability to clarify and integrate nanometre concepts, 4) the explanation of course content, and the learning environment, was improved, 5) the quality of courseware design was found to be the mediator between the instructor's teaching methods and students' learning performance.
