In 2007, we started a new class called Advanced use course of personal computer as an elective subject available to all students, and we adopted blended e-learning in the class. We composed the first half of the class which students study the use of various software. In the latter half, we imposed a group assignment, and a presentation of the results of it at the end of the class. We noticed that "Motivation of study" is a very critical factor in which the success or the failure of practice study through our educational practices. In the class at the latter term of fiscal year 2008, we attempted new trials using the Clicker and SNS, and we increased of number of presentation for group assignment from one to two times. As a result, we confirmed that students of almost 90% answered that the motivation of study increased as a result of these trials through a questionnaire.
