Chairman Wataru Hasegawa explained the founding philosophy of KCG and the educational philosophy of the KCG group, and the Japanese content industry, such as manga and animation, which has been attracting attention from around the world in recent years, as well as the art and We introduced in detail about content-related classes.In particular, the promotion video of the vocaloid “Hatsune Miku” developed by Mr. Hiroyuki Ito, KCGI professor, representative director of Krypton Future Media, seemed to have a strong impression.After the lecture, students asked questions about the progress of the RINGI system, the contents of KCGI and KCG education, the policies of Cool Japan, and so on.Although it was a short KCG visit for about 4 hours, the tour proceeded in a relaxed atmosphere from beginning to end, and it seemed to have deepened the understanding of the advanced IT education of the KCG group.
