The main purpose of the project is to establish an effective combination model of online and on-site study programs by utilizing overseas bases. The project period is for 5 years, from AY2021 to AY2025. Online exchange programs will be implemented for domestic and foreign students of partner universities in Japan and foreign countries. First, the program (in English) will be organised in the ASEAN region which is set as the target region. Subsequently, the target region will be expanded by taking advantage of international networks including partner foreign universities and overseas bases of universities participating in this project with consideration of time differences. In this process, both online and on-site programs about local culture and history will be conducted on their theme (after resumption of actual travel). The participating universities will provide their resources each other to establish more sophisticated models and share them with other universities in Japan.
