This paper reports the management of a large university classroom which introduces a social media tool called SUGI-KOTOBA. Generally, a large classroom has some problems in education for both teachers and students. For example, it is hard for teachers to hear a broad range of opinions from students quickly and effectively. Moreover, students often are educated through one-sided lectures, and they tend to have a lapse of concentration during class. As a solution to such problems, we introduced a social media tool called SUGI-KOTOBA that is jointly developed with SETJAPAN CORPORATION Inc. The SUGI-KOTOBA enables to form a temporal anonymous group of participants to share information by using a pre-shared keyword. In the group, teachers and students can communicate with each other via their smartphones. The feedback from students about the SUGI-KOTOBA indicated that a feeling of involvement in the class is increasing.
