We implemented an enhanced long-distance video conferencing system for long-term, cross-cultural studies. The usage of information technology overcame the strained relations and different cultural practices between Japan and Korea resulting in a friendly continuous cross-cultural exchange for over more than three years. Improvements in student learning abilities are linked to increased motivation and enthusiasm as a result of acquiring knowledge by successfully applying information technology systems, websites, bulletin board systems, and video conferencing. We enriched the minds of the students over an extended period of time without regard to historical and cultural differences.
