One-way lecturing, individual learning and group discussion activities were proposed in this study. After experiment, the experimental group students perceived that the STR is easy to use and useful for one way lecturing and individual learning. The statistical results showed that the experimental group students perform near significantly better than the control group students in second homework accomplishment. Besides, the experimental group performed significantly better in post-test. Interviews with the students revealed that they thought the usage of generated text by STR during online one-way lecturing was useful to follow lecturing simultaneously, clarify its content and take notes. As for individual learning, students thought the generated text by STR was useful for previewing previous lectures, taking notes and completing homework. Therefore students using text generated from STR had better understanding of course content and had better learning achievement.
