Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to analyze "the Japanese Millennial Generation" with reference to podcasting. Learners have more options now, with web 2.0 technologies, regarding how they achieve their goals. Now the technology promotes participatory, learner centered learning. To implement podcasting and other web 2.0 technologies effectively in Japanese higher education, it is necessary to understand the target of the education, Japanese Millennials. For this purpose, the first part of this study aims to understand "the digitalness of Japanese university students" in view of "podcasting" and "mass media consumption of Japanese Millennials." Second, the paper discusses the characteristics of Japanese Millennials in terms of preferences in learning styles. A survey was conducted in the first semester in 2007. The results will be beneficial for designing e-learning activities, especially using podcasting.
