Research Overview

Development of a full-scale lesson management support system and an e-learning system.

Research Subjects

  • 1. Software for education.
  • 2. Educational content creation.
  • 3. Software development.


We study development technology for educational software and develop software and content for education.

  • ・Full-scale lesson management support system
    We have developed WebLec, a full-scale lesson management support system that is programmed in Java. WebLec has been used for education in various universities for more than 10 years, and we introduce improvements annually.
  • ・e-Learning content for programming languages
    We have developed e-learning content for programming languages such as Java, C, and C++. We use many animations in the learning content to aid understanding.
  • ・Tools for web applications
    We have developed an object-oriented database system for web applications to aid design and development.
  • ・Educational content
    We study clear e-learning content by creating and evaluating various types of content.
  • ・E-book creation
    E-books are important for education. We propose a new e-book creation style and publish e-books with content that can be altered to match the level of the student.
