Concordancing is a type of computerized text analysis, long used by corpus linguists and literary, scholar employing a corpus and a concordancer. Concordancing allows us to discover the pattern of language that is used in the essay, to compare the pattern in different types of discourse. For example journalist, spoken vs written, literary, administrative text and etc. Concordancing is very useful for teacher for grammar references. Other than that, concordancing also useful to students to help them in their task or exercises.


This paper describes a Web-based English-Chinese concordance system, Total-Recall, developed to promote translation reuse and encourage authentic and idiomatic use in second language writing. They exploited and structured existing high-quality translation from the bilingual Sinorama Magazine to build the concordances of authentic text and translation. Novel approaches were taken to provide high-precision bilingual alignment on the sentence, phrases and word levels. A browser-based user interface (IU) is also develop for ease to access over the Internet. Users can search from word, phrases or expression I English and Chinese. The web-based users interface facilitates the recording of the user actions to provide data for further research

Benefit of concordance to language learning and teaching.

In my opinion, I think that concordance is really a good way in order to check how many words that were used in essay or article. It is because the results show us how many words are used. So, it can make people who want to learn about vocabulary. Concordance is really useful. For language teaching, it is very useful to use concordance to check student’s work.

Title : Teaching and Learning Logic in a Virtual Learning Environment.

The process of teaching and learning in a virtual learning environment (VLE) is so troublesome by creating lots of problems. Yet, the challenges and opportunities to reorganize the whole learning process, especially in abstract and logical subjects. In spite of that, resources and ways to work is available in VLEs recently and perhaps will extend to every environments soon. This article also present experience at the Open University of Catalonia (UOC), a particular VLE, concerning the whole process of logical teaching and numerals. Other than that, discussion on some challenges and presentation on some innovation projects allowed by the present and near future technologies will be made as well.

Title : Measuring the quality of e-learning

This article shows how concept can be map to measure the quality of e-learning. Six volunteers from 3rd-year medical students have taken part in a program of e-designed to instruct the values of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Measurement on their MRI understanding is made before and after the course by the use of concept mapping. As a consequence, the misconceptions of students were situated right in the course of their learning. Yet, there are still many of the key concepts introduced in the teaching were ignored by the students. This resulted in was because the teaching material locked these new ideas in structures and terminologies that not allowed meaning-making by the non-experts. The data suggests that students’ former knowledge is a key determinant of meaningful learning and this must be acknowledged if the design and use of electronic teaching material is also to be meaningful. Eventually, measurement on student learning is the only real indicator of the quality of teaching through technology
