We, IT Research Center, was opened in the year 2000 aiming for promoting IT related research in broad areas in collaboration with industry, government, and academia and for conducting international distance education with making the most of Internet technology as well.

We operate our projects on a research grant by Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT). From FY2004 to 2006, we also got a special grant so-called "Gendai GP" by MEXT and conducted a project in which we developed an e-Learning system to meet current social need for education.

We play an important role in not only conducting researches on methods and technologies but utilizing of its fruits for the development of educational support system. We keep pursuing further research and development to provide a better research and educational environment.
