Abstract

Korea's distance training institute has been in operation since 2000 with the aim of improving the quality of teachers. Without the restrictions of time and space, on-line learning in Korea has enjoyed a steady numerical growth in participation, accommodating over 600,000 teachers every year. On-line learning, however, has its fare share of problems as there is a possibility that the educational effectiveness of on-line learning could be lower than that of face-to-face training. Moreover, some institutes are poorly operating their on-line learning programs. In response to such drawbacks, the Korean government has been making efforts to enhance the quality of on-line learning for teachers since 2006 by conducting an overall assessment of distance training institutes for teachers. This study is a comprehensive analysis of the government's evaluation on distance training institutes to increase their on-line learning program quality for teachers. Based on the analysis, three measures have been outlined for the improvement of on-line learning with the expectations that these suggested changes will assist in enhancing the quality of on-line learning for teachers in the future.
