The authors compare the state of information studies and computer based learning in the United States and Japan. The practices of these countries are greatly affected by the large differences in social organization, culture and educational systems. A survey conducted by Susono of Japanese college students shows general dissatisfaction with the state of computer education. Eight specific areas are compared: class size, computer lab and multimedia environments, teachers versus students moving by period, curriculum and instructional methods, time devoted to information studies, learning software, cooperative learning, and the support system.
