Abstract: Vocabulary learning is an interactive and complex process of incremental learning and constant reinforcement. Studies have also proved that students’ vocabulary learning strategies deserve detailed investigation. To meet the challenges of interactive vocabulary learning, it is proposed that the combination of online annotation tools, such as highlights, pop-up windows, dictionaries, or notebooks can be helpful learning interventions for vocabulary acquisition. The features of accuracy, real-time immediacy, reliability, and great storage space are also beneficial to trace learners’ online vocabulary strategy use and browsing behavior. This study developed an interactive vocabulary annotation system for EFL vocabulary learning. A tracking system was embedded in the system to create learning log files of EFL learners’ lexical behavior and learning behavior in the system. Annotation Analyzer was also built to to examine the vocabulary learning behavior of the participants.
