The Use of ICT and e-Learning in Higher Education in Japan
This paper mainly states the application of technologies in education in Japan is far behind of other developed countries. Especially in higher education, apathy of students towards their study prevails and teachers continue ignoring such student attitudes. E-learning, which is supposed to revolutionalize the way people learn as it has potentials to enable more student-centered learning, has not been realized in Japan and mostly used to perpetuate the teacher-centered teaching in a different format. This paper is published in World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology.
