The Centers for Information Media Studies were created to maintain Aichi University’s information learning environment and to encourage computerization in the University’s various fields of education and research. By taking advantage of the Centers, University students gain information literacy, becoming familiar with technologies that they can use in their learning environment and gaining knowledge about information technologies that they will be able to put to immediate use in today’s information-driven society.
Together, the three Centers—one at each campus—provide a total of approximately 1,200 computers for student use. All computers are connected to the University’s LAN as well as to the Internet.
The Centers’ training labs and multimedia classrooms are used for a wide range of purposes, including classroom instruction such as information processing seminars; sending and receiving email; searching the Internet; writing reports and theses; holding courses conducted by the Centers on basic applications such as email, word processing, and spreadsheet software; and holding qualification examination preparation courses conducted by the Extension Center.
