Office of Educational Cloud, the University of Tsukuba

 

The Office of Educational Cloud has been established for the purpose of promoting e-learning at the university and improving the quality of education through ICT. Its main work is operating the learning management system (LMS) for the entire university. Furthermore, in an aim to expand educational materials focused on videos that provide better educational benefits than text-based educational materials that have been used up until now, the Office is introducing systems such as an automatic lecture recording and remote lecture system while producing and distributing various multimedia contents. In addition, the Office operates Open Course Ware (OCW) programs as a means to externally communicate the university’s education and research activities. The Office of Educational Cloud serves as the cloud infrastructure that aggregates these various educational information systems at the university.
