JaJan!: Remote Language Learning in Shared Virtual Space



JaJan! is a telepresence system wherein remote users can learn a second language together while sharing the same virtual environment. JaJan! can support five aspects of language learning: learning in context; personalization of learning materials; learning with cultural information; enacting language-learning scenarios; and supporting creativity and collaboration. Although JaJan! is still in an early stage, we are confident that it will bring profound changes to the ways in which we experience language learning and can make a great contribution to the field of second language education.
