Abstract

This paper reports cooperative experiment undertaken by Hokkaido University in Japan and the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) in the United States. The experiment was conducted in January, 2005. A classroom in the IT Education Hall at Hokkaido University, Japan and the Discovery Laboratory of the Arctic Region Supercomputing Center at the University of Alaska, Fair-banks were connected via the Internet and a domestic next-generation Internet research and educational network infrastructure called JGN2 that was operated by the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) in Japan. A high definition video conferencing system, a chat system, and a web-based voting system were used in the experiment to promote the establishment of an effective learning environment, particularly for cross-cultural learning.
