Hsiu-Ping Yueh, Ya-Ting Teng, Weijane Lin, Yu-Ching Wang, Chiu-Fan Hu
Creative Education (CE) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2012.38189
Abstract: Nowadays many web-based learning materials are presented by hypertext, and the effect of on-line reading has been playing a chief role to the learning outcomes. However, with the information and networking technology changing, reading habits are much more different than before, and hypertext reading has some problems that impede reading efficiency. The research is based on the ground to develop a web-based “annotation learning system”. By using this web-based learning system as a strategy, learner can interact with learning materials and instructors, also make learner to actively explore contents. The result shows that students have high propensity to the system, and most of them feel the system is easy to use. Also, they have positive response that the system can facilitate reading on the hypertext.

Wei-Jane Lin,Hsiu-Ping Yueh
Journal of Library and Information Studies , 2012,
Abstract: This study investigates college students’ reading behaviors and attitudes toward print and electronic carriers of books. With the prosperity and variety of ebook readers currently, it is important to understand the genuine needs of the users to better leverage the features and functions of the ebook readers. The methodology of survey research is conducted to explore 76 undergraduate students’ experiences, preferences and appraisals toward reading via the print books and ebook readers. Generally the college students possess positive attitudes toward and are willing to take advantage of the ebook and ebook reader services provided by libraries, but the current rate of use is low. The results suggested that student adoption of ebook readers are affected by their goals of reading. The college students prefer ebook readers significantly for leisure reading, and highly demand the functionality of multimedia presentations and file management. When reading academic contexts, the college students preferred hardcovers and online ebooks via the Web browser, and they value the functions of searching, marking and file management on ebook readers especially.

Hsiu-Ping Yueh,Weijane Lin,Jo-Yi Huang,Horn-Jiunn Sheen
Knowledge Management & E-Learning : an International Journal , 2012,
Abstract: This study applied multimedia in a general engineering and technology course in Taiwan and evaluated the effectiveness of multimedia-assisted instruction and learning. The course presented trends in technological development and the achievements of Taiwanese industries and research institutes from a historical perspective, and overviewed the technology industries and industrial transformation development in Taiwan. The course units adopted multimedia to support class teaching and student learning, and a survey was conducted to collect students’ attitudes and perception toward multimedia-assisted instruction and learning in the course. Research data were collected from 45 male and 9 female students with varied academic and cultural backgrounds. Results showed that multimedia videos help raise students’ awareness of learning issues, improve their understanding of content, and increase the depth of their learning. Almost all students liked the approach of using multimedia to assist teaching and learning, preferring this approach over traditional lecture-based instruction. They also would recommend this course to their peers. This study also found that the degree of students’ engagement caused variance in the students’ perception of multimedia helpfulness in assisting their learning. Finally, this study further proposes suggestions in both design and research on applications of multimedia-enhanced learning in engineering and technology education.

Chiao-Wen Hsu,Hsiu-Ping Yueh,Wei-Jane Lin
Journal of Library and Information Studies , 2010,
Abstract: The infusion of information and communication technology into instruction has gained the foothold within many classrooms in higher education by its advantages to enable the variety and accessibility of school teaching and learning. However, to engage students with the technology enhanced learning experiences calls for attentions on more the processes than the mere outcome of technology use. This study examines the common phenomenon in college campus where network technology, group activities and project works are available with the intention to explore how student performance of teamwork and learning is affected by the micro factors of group compositions, members’ roles and their communication behaviors. Results show that the group performed most procedure-, task-, and social-communication behaviors during the execution stage than that of preparation and completion stages. Additionally, members’ roles performed and interfered within these stages positively affected the project performance to different extent. [Article content in Chinese; Extended abstract in English]
A Study of Rural Elderly’s Health Information Needs and Seeking Behavior
Wei-Chun Liao,Li-An Chiu,Hsiu-Ping Yueh
Journal of Library and Information Studies , 2012,
Abstract: Survey method was used and 92 valid questionnaires were collected for the analyses. The results showed that the majority of the rural elder people expressed the need for and attention to health information. ‘‘health service information’’ and ‘‘prevention health care information’’ were the most needed and important. Family, friends and television were the main channels for accessing health information. However, fewer respondents actively sought health information. When health problems occurred, they tended to seek direct medical treatment. This study also found that men were more attentive and active in seeking health information. Respondents over 75 years old rarely concerned about their health information need. People with more education were also more aware of their health information needs and more attentive to information disseminated via mass media. [Article content in Chinese]
A Study of University Faculty’s Information Seeking Behavior for Professional Development in Teaching
Ying-Chen Lee,Hsiu-Ping Yueh,Shih-kuan Hsu
Journal of Library and Information Studies , 2004,
Abstract: University faculty constantly seeks information to improve their teaching. The purpose of this study was to survey the areas of demand, and the strategies faculty use to pursue professional development in teaching. A total of 183 questionnaire was collected from teachers of three universities and colleges in northern Taiwan. The results of this study suggested: 1).The highest demand and application in teaching professional development was "to facilitate student’s learning;" the lowest was "to use instructional methods and the strategies". 2).The information channel most frequently used by teachers was print materials, and the next was Internet resources. 3). Individual backgrounds such as age and disciplines influenced the demand on professional development, the level of application, and the information seeking behavior significantly. Suggestions related to the future research topics and for the teaching professional development of higher educations were presented at the end. [Article content in Chinese]
Redescription of Marstonia comalensis (Pilsbry & Ferriss, 1906), a poorly known and possibly threatened freshwater gastropod from the Edwards Plateau region (Texas)
Robert Hershler,Hsiu-Ping Liu
ZooKeys , 2011, DOI: 10.3897/zookeys.77.935
Abstract: Marstonia comalensis, a poorly known nymphophiline gastropod (originally described from Comal Creek, Texas) that has often been confused with Cincinnatia integra, is re-described and the generic placement of this species, which was recently allocated to Marstonia based on unpublished evidence, is confirmed by anatomical study. Marstonia comalensis is a large congeneran ovate-conic, openly umbilicate shell and penisa short filament and oblique, squarish lobe bearing a narrow gland along its distal edge. It is well differentiated morphologically from congenerssimilar shells and penes and is also genetically divergent relative to those congeners that have been sequenced (mtCOI divergence 3.0–8.5%). A Bayesian analysis of a small COI dataset resolved M. comalensis in a poorly supported sub-clade together with M. hershleri, M. lustrica and M. pachyta. The predominantly new records presented herein indicate that M. comalensis was historically distributed in the upper portions of the Brazos, Colorado, Guadalupe and Nueces River basins, south-central Texas. The species has been live collected at only 12 localities and only two of these have been re-visited since 1993. These data suggest that the conservation status of this snail, which has a critically imperiled (G1) NatureServe ranking and was recently proposed for federal listing, needs to be re-assessed.

Chang Gung Medical Journal , 2006,
Abstract: The neurotoxic effects of levamisole therapy have been rarely reported. In this article,we report two patients who developed multifocal demyelinating leukoencephalopathy(MDL) after levamisole treatment. Clinically, they had dizziness, nausea, vomiting, confusion,mental dullness, speechlessness, and memory impairment after the treatment. The totaldosage of levamisole was 300 mg and 1800 mg, respectively. The onset of symptoms wasacute or subacute, from a few hours to several weeks. Initial brain magnetic resonance imaging(MRI) demonstrated diffuse multifocal enhancing lesions in the subcortical white matter.After the withdrawal of levamisole, and during the follow-up period, the neurological andneuropsychological manifestations and serial brain MRI improved gradually. We concludethat levamisole treatment may induce MDL, and that the brain MRI changes may correlatewell with the recovery of clinical features and neuropsychological findings. In addition,early steroid treatment is crucial, and the neurotoxic effect of levamisole is not dose-dependentand may be idiosyncratic or immune-mediated.

PLOS ONE , 2013, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0068314
Abstract: Objective The risk of stroke in patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD) remains controversial. The purpose of this population-based propensity score-matched longitudinal follow-up study was to determine whether there is an increased risk of ischemic stroke after PD. Methods We used a logistic regression model that includes age, sex, pre-existing comorbidities and socioeconomic status as covariates to compute the propensity score. A total of 2204 patients with at least two ambulatory visits with the principal diagnosis of PD in 2001 was enrolled in the PD group. The non- PD group consisted of 2204, propensity score-matched subjects without PD. The ischemic stroke-free survival rates of the two groups were estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method. Stratified Cox proportional hazard regression with patients matched on propensity score was used to estimate the effect of PD on the occurrence of ischemic stroke. Results During the three-year follow-up period, 328 subjects in the PD group and 156 subjects in the non-PD group developed ischemic stroke. The ischemic stroke-free survival rate of the PD group was significantly lower than that of the non-PD group (P<0.0001). The hazard ratio (HR) of stroke for the PD group was 2.37 (95% confidence interval [CI], 1.92 to 2.93, P<0.0001) compared to the non- PD group. Conclusions This study shows a significantly increased risk of ischemic stroke in PD patients. Further studies are required to investigate the underlying mechanism.
