The Hakusan Internet Television Station (HiTS) Project has been promoted by the Faculty of Sociology at Toyo University since June 2006. Specifically, the Department of Media and Communications has been taking the central role of producing the programs for the Project and disseminating information since the end of March 2007.
The main activity carried out under the HiTS Project is the regular dissemination outside the University of information contents (productions) that students have created by planning, collecting, and editing materials, with a particular focus on regional information regarding Hakusan, Bunkyo-ku and the surrounding areas. Students create productions as part of their course assignments from the Faculty of Sociology and through voluntary extracurricular activities. In addition to disseminating various pieces of information including via its website, the Project mainly shares video productions produced in the filmmaking environment created in the practical learning room at the Department of Media and Communications by using the filming equipment provided in the room.
