On December 1, 2017, special lectures and culture classes were held at the Kyoto Station Satellite Hall of The Kyoto College of Graduate Studies for Informatics (KCGI) and other locations to learn more about HTML5, which has become the mainstream language used in web technology.Chairman Narui said, "Unlike Java and other languages, HTML5 can realize functions that were not available in conventional browsers, from graphics to communication.Nowadays, the IT industry is looking for people with not only technical skills but also creative abilities.Learning HTML5 and obtaining a certification will not only help you get a job, but will also be very useful in your future career," he said.

In November 2016, KCGI and KCG became the first higher education institutions in the Kansai region to receive LPI-Japan HTML5 Academic Accreditation, in recognition of their outstanding achievements in professional education in the IT and web fields.For about a year since then, we have been providing high quality education to students seeking to obtain HTML5 Professional Certification and actively developing activities that contribute to the development of web professionals and the expansion of the HTML5 business.From March 6 to March 10, 2017, an intensive course, "Practical HTML5 Application Development," was offered to the general public.

In his lecture, Chairman Narui cited the example of Apple's Steve Jobs, who was one of the first to adopt HTML5 in 2010, and the recent shift by many companies to HTML5 for their internal mission-critical systems, and added, "The market for IT plus video, music, and other creative fields is enormous.HTML5 is a language that can achieve them.We encourage you to take on the challenge of obtaining certification.
