Abstract:

In Taiwan, because of the change of social structure, the number of transnational marriage immigrants, mostly females, coming from Southeast Asia has increased dramatically in recent years. This oneyexchanged mates and cultural circumstances differ will cause them to face the acculturation pressures. The aims of this study are to construct a story-based interactive for foreign spouses accommodation courses. Considering the varied cultural background and education divide, we integrated the anchor strategy, modularity concept and web navigation to construct a vivid, flexible and effective learning environment. An exploratory test was carried out with 32 foreign spouses. Research data were collected through the questionnaire. The results revealed that the interactive PowerPoint could effectively attract and maintain the participants attention; they felt that the course content and activities were related to their personal goals. Also, they were confident to achieve the expected outcomes of the course and satisfied with the instruction.
