Last year, in COSCUP’20, I told about new OSS Apps, Dialogbook, and OLiVES, which I developed. In this talk, I will give you my experiences on utilizing those tools. From September to December 2020, we provided international different culture communicational education for Taiwanese high schools and Japanese high schools. I offered web services based on the Dialogbook to the students and teachers participating in the project in our activities. Several data were obtained from the operation of the tool. We analyzed the data and used it to prove our proposed methods’ efficiency in understanding the other culture each other. In this talk, I will give you an overview of Dialogbook, our project, and the results. Dialogbook is published as an open-source software application; therefore, you can utilize it in your job or any activities if you would like to use it.
