KCGI starts collaborative research on e-learning and MOOC with Korean universities

The Scientific Research Fund-based Research Project Team, led by Professor of Kyoto Information Graduate University (KCGI), etc., conducts international research on e-Learning and MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses), which are expected to become increasingly popular worldwide. In order to promote this, the Korea-Jeju National University e-learning Support Center and the “Smart Greed and Clean Energy Fusion Industrial Human Resource Development Corporation” (Korea) and the “Japan-Korea e-learning, MOOC Content Joint Research Agreement” Was exchanged on May 17th.

This research was started in 2016, led by Toshio Okamoto, Professor KCGI, a research project “Development of next-generation e-learning infrastructure oriented to social networking in consideration of internationalization” by the Japanese Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (Science) Research grants (B) 16H03087) are supported by KCGI, including Prof. Noboru Takahiro, Kazushi Sakuhana, and Koji Emi, and Shinshu University, Shizuoka Sangyo University, Osaka Gakuin University The teachers are also participating.

In the future, KCGI-centered research project teams will collaborate with universities and business groups in South Korea to develop and operate a tripartite exchange program in order to advance research on e-learning and MOOC content on the premise of internationalization. We will continue to build a “real-time video system” to promote joint research, hold annual joint workshops, and exchange e-learning and MOOC content.

In response to the recent spread and internationalization of online education, KCGI established a new media collaboration course in April 2017, and established a communication system program and an educational media program.In this course, KCGI teachers who are active at the forefront of the field can learn practically about diversifying media and expression technology, optimal TV conference system design, e-learning environment construction, educational content development, etc. The
