Plan for Vitalisation of Application of Big Data for e-Learning in South Korea


Recently, as big data have emerged, analysis-based decision-making, problem-solving and business opportunity creation come to the fore as important issues in business. As the effects of using big data have been proven, the range of the application is rapidly expanding to the industrial, public and social sectors. Keeping pace with this trend, the educational world is facing a new turning point: e.g. Building up a big data-based education environment is attempted. However, in South Korea, there are few studies related to big data-based education and almost no applications to the field of education, yet. As a result of the study, it was analysed that the e-Learning industry recognises the importance of big data, and yet, it has not yet considered the introduction due to a lack of human resources, the absence of technologies and a lack of successful cases. Thus, it is necessary for the government to actively develop policies such as fostering big data specialists in the field of e-Learning, supporting related technological developments and constructing technological infrastructure for the application of big data.
