Infection Prevention and Safety Initiatives

In order to protect the health of students and faculty from infection with the new coronavirus, the Kobe Institute of Computing, Graduate School of Information Technology (Chuo-ku, Kobe City) began to conduct all school events and classes, including seminars, online during Japan's Emergency Declaration period. By using an online video conferencing system, professors are able to offer classes from their homes, and students can participate from home, which helps in our efforts to reduce the frequency of outings and lowering the risk of transmission. By allowing international students who have not been able to return to Japan to participate in these online classes from their home countries, we have been able to avoid cancellations and continue to hold 100% of our classes. All school staff have installed the COVID-19 Contact Tracing App (COCOA), and we're working to quickly determine when contact has occurred with ill individuals. The school is also making efforts to share information about the spread of the coronavirus by installing Hyogo Prefecture's COVID-19 tracing system.
