—To increase economic for countries of Southeast
Asian, the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) will be
established. Herbal medicine is a part of healthcare service,
which is set as important products in this community.
Healthcare practitioners including pharmacists need
knowledge of herbal medicine. However, it is hard for a student
to familiar with several medicinal herbs with a limitation of
time. In this paper, KUIHerbRx2013, a Web-based supplement
learning tool on herbal medicine, is introduced.
KUIHerbRx2013 supports a collaborative learning to improve
knowledge and skill in herbal medicine with a scientific method
and support herb names in multi-lingual and multi-script for
AEC. Activities of collecting, contributing new opinions, vote to
existing opinions, and providing useful information to the
system, enhance skill in herbal medicine. With the assessment,
the results show that this tool is the useful collaborative learning
tool in herbal medicine for AEC.
