Support for the Introduction of COIL
We invited Professor Keiko Ikeda from Kansai University to the workshop as a speaker. Kansai University has been pioneering efforts in COIL, such as developing COIL networks with many universities in Asia, South America, and Africa, starting with the COIL class held in the spring semester of 2014.

Key Points When Choosing Equipment
It is desirable to prepare microphones and speakers separately as those built into PCs may not be suitable for COIL-type classes. If the number of participants is large (eight or more as a guide), you will need high-performance equipment.
Please note that howling may occur if you use a microphone and a speaker at the same time.
You will need to buy a webcam if your PC does not have one. There are Windows-only and Mac-only webcams, so you need to check with the retailer when purchasing one.
＜Examples of Rental Equipmen＞
- Laptop PCs equipped with a webcam
Please see “Equipment List” (PDF file) for details.
We have compiled a manual with an example of using the equipment in the conference room of our university. Please refer to the procedure for setting up/removing the equipment in the manual.
