Abstract: This research paper presents a case-study of the introduction of a specific software technology, Google Classroom, into a College course syllabus. This case study represents an example of an innovation successfully diffused in a foreign language learning environment. The research details one potential use of Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) at Niijima Gakuen Junior College, hereinafter referred to as Niijima College. The success of the application of this software is judged by the experiences and reactions of the students, and of this researcher by way of questionnaire and observations of student collaboration, peer-support, and completion of assignments and tasks. This paper presents the first English language CALL research at Niijima Junior College and will hopefully lay the foundation for future use of and development of CALL at the college. The paper adds insight into how relatively cheap and easily accessible computer software can be adopted at the tertiary level for localized and appropriate student-centered learning. A notable outcome of this potential adoption is the successful diffusion of the technology, namely Google Classroom. The paper will use the recorded observations and results from this paper to plan and implement the same course for the 2017 Spring Semester, planning and design more appropriate class-specific Google Classroom applications for better student learning experiences.
