System Outline

The Information Media Studies System provides an environment for classes and self-study using computers, where approximately about 1100 personal computers are installed as information media terminals. These information media terminals are installed separately in Satellite Laboratories in nine departments in addition to the Main Center Open Laboratory. The Main Center and Satellite Laboratories are used for professional education using computers, such as information media literacy education.

The Main Center Laboratory and Satellite Laboratories are information media education bases that are distributed throughout the campus and connected by the Information Media Education System. The Main Center Laboratory and Satellite Laboratories are connected via a network for the Information Media Education System and high speed communication is available. Faculty and staff members and students can hold classes or study in the Satellite Laboratory of their departments. Under the new system, which was renewed in August 2019, ten laboratories were established, including nine satellite laboratories in departments and the Main Center Laboratory.
