The experience through ICT is different from one in face to face situation.Therefore, in this research the authors identified characteristic on the experiential learning through ICT, then suggest elements that should be considered for designing its learning environments. The authors studied a case of Japanese education as an experiential learning. Students who study teaching methodology of Japanese language teach Japanese language learner in Hawaii and Thai in order to develop their practical and professional skill of Japanese education by using video-conferencing system and social networking service.
