Showcase - 02. Tamagawa University – Associate Professor Kozakai
We were present at a Skype meeting of three people working together to prepare a paper for presentation at an academic conference, sharing materials between their three locations using Share Anytime.
We met up at the laboratory of Masakazu Kozakai, Associate Professor at the Department of Management Science, College of Engineering at Tamagawa University College. Meeting participants were Associate Professor Kozakai and his co-researchers participating via Skype: Associate Professor Minoru Okada from the School of Commerce at Senshu University, and Management Control Laboratory, College of Engineering at Tamagawa University research student Shiori Kitami, who participated from her home prefecture of Niigata.

A presentation draft sheet used in the meeting, with notes written via Share Anytime.
The slide drafts that Ms. Kitami had prepared for the academic conference presentation were already loaded into the Share Anytime notes on the three participants' iPads. They also shared these notes with our iPad.
At the three-person meeting, they looked at the slide pages, making remarks such as, "we should illustrate the number graph using pictures showing positions and process", and we could see the notes and instructions appear on the slide drafts in real time.
When reviewing materials for a presentation, writing notes and instructions directly on the materials is an effective way of making sure all meeting participants have a shared awareness. However, until now, all participants had to be in the same location in order for them to all make notes on and view a single file.
By using Share Anytime, as done in this meeting, the participants can be located anywhere, and still view and write notes on the same materials. Not only that, but notes can be shared with a maximum of 100 people. At this meeting, Share Anytime served a very useful purpose in the review of presentation materials.
This note was shared between the three people in three separate locations via Share Anytime on their iPads.
Before and after the meeting, we spoke to Associate Professor Masakazu Kozakai about his feelings on using Share Anytime. Ms. Kitami also participated via Skype from Niigata.
Shiori Kitami (shown in screen) who was already a Note Anytime user participated from Niigata.
"I was able to use Share Anytime immediately" says Associate Professor Kozakai. Thank you very much.
