    Abstract PDF
    Traditionally instructional design has been based on the systematic utilization of the instructional resources to foster the effective, efficient and appealing aspects of the human learning. However, the progress of new technologies challenges instructional design professionals to view their area from different perspectives. The new environment shaped by the new technologies, coupled with the accumulation of the knowledge from the related areas seems to bring about the challenges as well as opportunities at the same time. The study is an attempt to explore the future directions for instructional design research considering the context of the expansion of knowledge technologies. The research consisted of three parts. First, the study reviewed newly developed knowledge technologies in relation to the instructional design. Second, the research reviewed newly developed trends in the influential areas such as learning science, learning technology, brain science, distance education, and cognitive science. Third, the study attempted to conceptualize the change needs from inside of the instructional design field as well as outside of it. As a result, the research summarized that the change needs immersed from the four basic sources: the importance of the context, the importance of the holistic and final product oriented thinking, the importance of the media-intact thinking, and the importance of the 'web 2.0' based thinking. Finally, the values of the instructional design research were discussed and three directions of future research were suggested.

This social capital fostering of the city is still young, being a driving force of building the association-cooperation system which is being realized in diverse ways based on mutual benefits. However, it can be argued that the implementation status and efficiency in terms of association and cooperation side of this city have some week points. Finally, as a solution for the realization of this city, the nation and self-government bodies should make an effort to build the physical and environmental association and cooperation among the institutions and establishments. Additionally, they must come up with a solution to crank up the study clubs' activities in the interest of sociality and method for wide-spread programs for social consolidation as well as ways to extend the study of regions regarding the enhancement of sense of connection among individuals.

    This study addresses how the type of presenting e-learning contents affects learning outcome. The study examines learning outcome such as students' learning achievement, satisfaction, and perceived learning outcome of a course in liberal arts by three different types: Video recording type of live lecture, Web-Based Instruction type, and Text type. As a result, students achieved better by WBI type than Video lecture type and were more content with what they learned by WBI and Text types than Video lecture type. The findings of this study show that the effectiveness of e-learning contents presentation type does not always correspond with students' preference. Significant implications were suggested to develop e-learning contents types for similar courses and further to develop effective contents types for various courses.

    Abstract PDF
    This qualitative study explored students’ academic help seeking through a message board in an online Q&A service in an educational website in South Korea. In particular, this study identified the advantages and disadvantages of a Q&A service for academic help seeking, as seen by students. While there are some challenges of academic help seeking through asynchronous text-based message board, the four most important benefits reported: feeling comfortable, overcoming time and space limitation, having enough time to organize questions and understand answers, and being motivated to study hard and stimulated cognitively by sharing messages with others. Implications for practice are also discussed.
