The number of smartphonesis increased exponentially and they are promising tools for interactive learning during lectures in the universities. However, when in a lecture roomtens of sets of smartphones want to make simultaneous connection by Wi-Fi, the traffic will be increased and the network will be congested. In this study, we examined the effective use of the smartphones during the lectures. We considereda method of acquiring/utilizing the study records, which improves the students’learning motivation. In this research, we use smartphones as information terminals and carried out experiments in a real lecture room. The proposed method improves the degree of lecture understanding, thus improving students’ learning motivation.
