The Current Status and Future Prospects of Corporate e-Learning in Korea
AbstractCorporate e-Learning in Korea has rapidly grown for the last five years(2000-2005). This study argues that the main cause of such a drastic increase in distance education for adults in Korea was not the needs of companies to provide high-quality training programs through Internet but the initiative of government to make the whole state as an information society. The policies for quantitative growth with minimum levels of quality and uniformity have been dominant and resulted in the lack of diverse e-Learning types for authentic practices in workplaces. The paper suggests the corporate e-Learning should be directed by both the governmental support and the companies’ initiative in order to cope with the demand of the newly required competencies for more employees.
