Abstract

The aim of this study is to present the development process involved in the learning support activity with ICT, which began in 2010 at Ochanomizu University. In this paper, I propose a way to provide an environment that produces a useful connection between offline and online learning activities. I developed new ICT environments by using Plone, which is an open source content management system. We customized it so that the teachers and students can communicate interactively. In addition, I present the reason for applying Plone, and the effects of the learning support activity with Plone. Second, I present the results of incorporating Plone with other devices such as digital whiteboards and tablet PCs in an actual class setting. Having reviewed both options, I propose that there are possible applications in learning support activities with ICT in a university setting, as well as nonformal learning activities, which will connect university lectures to other areas of society.
