The “Collaborative Video Making Program” will provide you an opportunity to create a video clip with other participants via a web conferencing system that enables people around the globe to enjoy active online interactions. You will be asked to discuss and share the ideas with your overseas counterparts regarding topics, themes or contents of a clip. We believe that unique, attractive video contents will raise people’s interests in cultures or traditions in different countries, and become a strong driving force for robust inbound and outbound exchanges in the days to come. By engaging in this online platform, you will find yourself to become more open and receptive to new ideas or perspectives, enjoy and appreciate a strong sense of achievements and a spirit of teamwork.
We hope that through your participation in this online platform, many discoveries will be made and a lot of new encounters will take place. We truly look forward to welcoming your participation in this “Collaborative Video Making Program!”


Today, free inflow and outflow of people across national borders is strictly limited, which is creating the situations where fewer and fewer people can enjoy experiencing cultures or traditions of different countries firsthand. We asked ourselves, “What can we do in these extremely challenging times?” Thanks to the kind cooperation from the members of our Gifu University Organization for Promotion of Glocalization, we have come up with a completely new online platform for communications and exchanges. Our “Collaborative Video Making Program” takes the form of web conferencing and asks students’ participation from Gifu University, Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati and Universiti Kebangssan Malaysia (both of which are Gifu University’s joint degree programs partner universities). This program is an alternative program in lieu of the Winter School and Spring School programs being undertaken until last year.
Instead of conducting academic exchanges in specific research fields, we set the following goal for the program: “Create a video clip for an acceleration of international exchange.” Given that responses to COVID-19 vary by countries, the program participation is available for anyone while staying at home.
