Since 2002, Ministry of Employment and Labor in Korea has been supporting workers’ professional development by funding e-Learning training programs that are not restricted by time and space. In 2008, 1.43 million workers received the corporate e-Learning training and 67,635,793(US$) was funded by the government. In 2009, the respective figure was 1,851,000 and 82,782,033(US$).
While the quantitative scale growth in Korea’s corporate e-Learning has been substantial, the quality growth represented by the training opportunities has not. The content of training programs is concentrated in the field of shared values, leadership and ethics management and few profession job categories have been accounted for. Professional duties trainings are conducted by 70% of the professional jobs including the office management, telecommunications, banking and insurance. In order to enhance the quality of training programs and improve their diversity, an institutional improvement of government support should be made.
