Abstract

Simulation, such as role plays, recognized as an effective method in professional skills education, is important to the success of Japan's new Ministry-accredited law schools. When simulation is introduced into the classroom, analysis of interaction and performance becomes important. The authors developed a system, the STream Indexing and Commenting System (STICS), which supports that process. STICS is a system that permits comments to be attached to streaming video, and is accessible from any terminal having access to the Internet. In this paper, the authors describe STICS and discuss the experience of using STICS in a classroom setting. STICS offers an individualized learning environment and enables students' reflection and analysis. Through use of the system, students were able to conduct reflection and analysis effectively. The authors conclude that STICS is a useful tool to support the use of simulation as a teaching device.
