A Study on Interactive Educational and Learning Communication in Consideration of Simultaneity and Heterogeneity for Improving the Quality of Education

Abstract—Recently, researchers have studied the education on the basis of the concept of the service science and analysed its educational effectiveness in consideration of the simultaneity and heterogeneity that characterise the services. However, it is very difficult for the teacher to design the constitution of the classes when taking into account the heterogeneity of students’ learning because the education given by the teacher and the learning of the students occur simultaneously. The previous study showed that improving the satisfaction and the learning outcomes of students at the same time is quite challenging. To increase the degree of student satisfaction, it is important that the teacher and students create and develop mutual understanding through effective communication. On the other hand, for the students’ learning effects to improve, they themselves have to develop their learning styles. Once both goals are achieved, the improvement in education and learning is to be expected. In this study, we analysed in detail the educational effectiveness of improving the lessons and the learning behaviours of students based on educational and learning communication after the midterm educational survey. We divided the students into six groups, according to their learning outcomes. Through the analysis, we could grasp the relationship between the learning styles of the students, educational improvements, and learning outcomes. Furthermore, we could determine which factors are effective for students in all groups and which are effective with the trade-off resulting from the communication between one teacher and many students.

Index Terms—Analysis according to learning outcomes, educational improvement, effectiveness for students in all groups and with the trade-off, heterogeneity, interactive educational and learning communication, simultaneity.
