President Juichi Yamagiwa of Kyoto University invited two excellent students who won the competition from the participants of the English lecture "Human Evolution Theory" distributed on the Internet to Kyoto University and presented them with a certificate and a souvenir.

 According to Kyoto University, Korean high school student Rachel Ann and South African field guide Gaspar van Hongme were invited. The two were students of the online English lecture "Human Evolution Theory" led by President Yamagiwa, and were evaluated for "uniqueness and creativity of approach" and "creativity of ideas" for the contents of the report imposed in the lecture. He was selected as an excellent student in the final selection held at the Shiran Kaikan Yamauchi Hall in Sakyo-ku, Kyoto.

 During their stay in Japan, they interacted with President Yamagoku, primatology faculty members, and students, and made poster presentations on the submitted issues at the Primates Study Group held at the Japan Monkey Center in Inuyama City, Aichi Prefecture. ..

 "I didn't know much about primatology before taking the course, but this lecture and this stay made me more interested in the social structure of primates," said Hamme. I was able to directly experience the cutting-edge experiments I saw on TV before. If a new lecture on primatology is delivered from Kyoto University, I would definitely like to take it. "

 Kyoto University distributes online lectures to the world through MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) platform edX, which was launched mainly by Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University.
