Abstract: This study proposes a new knowledge map, the integrated knowledge map, which is a combination of individual knowledge maps. Learners draw their own knowledge maps to reflect their learning activities. Our system collects the individual knowledge maps from many learners and integrates them to generate an integrated version of their knowledge map. We apply the graph analysis method to extract important keywords from the knowledge map. The results of the analysis are helpful for teachers to determine whether students could retain the important keywords that were introduced into their memory. We conducted surveys that asked course managers to evaluate the effectiveness of the integrated knowledge map, and received positive responses.
