Students can exchange their ideas or opinions before and after classes by writing and reading on the WBB. The log record, which includes indexes such as access frequency, referred frequency, and student names, and texts written by students on the WBB were analyzed. Results indicate the following researchfindings: (1) WBB plays a role to facilitate positive participation to classes, (2) Contrary to the traditional instruction without the WBB access, students were able to deepen their understanding of the theme by accessing the WBB before and after classes, (3) The aforementioned indexes were used as students' evaluation measure.
