Abstract: This paper is a report on the work to create an experimental platform for English vocabulary building. The platform developed under the name of KCCT Vocabulary Builder is a smartphone based English vocabulary learning application. The objectives of this application are not only to develop the students' vocabulary, but also to analyze the students' learning behaviors. The application working on a smartphone has been developed successfully accumulate not only our students' learning performances but also some learning behavioral data with some inconscient biological data, including a brainwave, a blinking point of time and strength, and physical movements of the smartphone as an indicator of the holding stability. The data accumulated in the course of learning vocabulary has been used to analyze students' learning characteristics statistically.
