Abstract

As information and communication technology becomes increasingly an integral part of society, and as Koreans grow more dependent on information, the demand is growing not only for high-quality education but also for more sustainable and accessible lifelong learning. In South Korea, the demand for e-learning is growing as a methodology to meet such a demand. Its technological infrastructure, ranked with the world’s most advanced nations, along with strong government support for e-learning related policies, both provide the necessary conditions for the proliferation and success of e-learning in Korea. To guarantee success for the next generation of e-learning in Korea, however, issues regarding quality control, development and maintenance of human resources, improvement of laws and regulations for e-learning, and efforts to standardize e-learning technology need to be pushed forward in tandem—not as discrete issues, but as an integral whole.
