The Mi-Room is an experiential learning environment where students utilize
their existing language skills and synthesize them with newly acquired knowledge and experience in a practical, tangible manner.The Mi-Room also has facilities for self-study, and provides an environment for people wishing to meet international students and experience cross-cultural communication in a meaningful way.

【What's Virtual Mi-Room?】
An online interaction space where Kansai University students and students overseas can join together and casually communicate with each other. This virtual space (oVice) is different from other meeting tools like Zoom, in a sense that you can easily go around the room set in the space using your own avatar. This function will make you feel as if you are interacting with others in person.
