    Jeong, Hanho | 2022, 18(1) | pp.92~116 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study is to explore the structural relationship between SERVQUAL sub-variables (assurance, empathy, reliability, responsiveness,tangible), perceived quality of distance instruction, and satisfaction in university’s distance learning due to the corona pandemic. In addition, we examined the moderating effects of contingency variables such as ‘distance learning experience’and ‘planning of class participation’. In this study, convenience sampling was conducted focused on students enrolled in University B in the metropolitan area who participated in distance learning, and a total of 228 students were selected as the research subjects. As a result, first, among the sub-variables of SERVQUAL,assurance, empathy, and responsiveness were found to have a significant effect on the perceived quality of distance instruction. Second, the perceived quality of distance instruction was found to have a significant influence on the satisfaction of students who participated in distance learning. Third, it was found that‘distance learning experience’ before the corona pandemic and ‘class participation planning’ in remote learning moderated the relationship between ‘SERVQUAL sub-variables and perceived quality of distance instruction’. Based on this study,implications for improving the quality of university distance learning were presented.

    Lee Seung Yeong , Bae Hyunmin , YU LIN | 2022, 18(1) | pp.117~146 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study is to compare and analyze the variables that affect learning outcomes in the personal and learning factors of elderly learners before and after COVID-19. For this purpose, the results of the ‘Survey on Lifelong Study at the Individual Level’ in 2019 and 2020 of the Korea Educational Development Institute were used. The main findings of this study are summarized as follows. First, compared to 2019, there were differences in individual factors,learning factors, and learning outcomes of elderly learners in 2020. Second, as for the variables that have a significant influence on learning outcomes, there were more learning factors than individual factors in both 2019 and 2020, and it was found that all learning factor variables affect learning outcomes in 2020. Finally, it was found that vocational competency education and familiarity with digital learning media were the variables that showed a big difference among the learning factors affecting the lower domains of learning outcomes in 2020 compared to 2019. Based on these research results, the direction of education for the elderly to improve learning outcomes was suggested.

The purpose of this study is to examine the impact of coursework changes and the college retention in distance higher education institutions during the COVID-19 crisis. This study is designed to compare coursework and retention before and after COVID-19. Using t-test, cross tab analysis, logistic regression, student data (44,389 cases from 2019 and 43,748 cases from 2020) from a national open university are analyzed. All coursework variables are significantly different between 2019 and 2020. During the COVID-19 pandemic, students shows better academic performance and higher retention. Students in 2020 get higher grade and more credits than students in 2019. More students in 2020 continue next semester than before.

    Kim, Myunghee | 2022, 18(1) | pp.170~197 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This study was conducted to determine the effects of non-face-to-face classes using an online forum on student self-directed learning, communication, and problem-solving abilities, and to explore student perceptions of the classes. To this end, pre and post tests were conducted for students in 20 classes that used the N portal-based online forum in the first semester of 2021 at S University, and student perceptions of the classes were collected through open-ended questions. A total of 261 students participated. The results of the effects analysis showed that all three abilities were significantly improved. In addition, through the student perception analysis using the CIPP evaluation model, implications for the context(C), input (I), process (P), and product (P) evaluation categories were drawn to improve classes using an online forum. The results of the study suggest that online forums have educational value as a venue for online learning that effectively facilitates teaching, cognitive, and social presences, and that a systematic approach and the concerted efforts of universities and instructors are needed to improve classes.

    The Effects of Online Learning Behavior and Socioeconomic Backgrounds on the Students’ Achievement: Based on the LMS Logs of Adult Learners’ Introductory Economic Course

    Shin, Woojin , Namhyung Lee | 2022, 18(1) | pp.198~234 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This study analyzed the relationship between the online learning behavior and socioeconomic background of 3,698 students taking the introductory economics course at Korea National Open University and their final exam results. this study, we use quantile regression analysis. The results show that, as a whole, gender and final educational level before admission had a significant effect on academic achievement, but the effect diminished as the grades increased. In the case of watching more than 2/3 of the total lectures and high-intermediate grades,learning progress and repeated watching had a significant positive effect, but the watching period and the start time of watching had a significant negative effect. For the top-ranked students, there was no significant relationship between learning behavior and grades. Despite the limitations of data collection and processing, the following implications could be derived. First, it is necessary to induce watching video lectures from the beginning of the semester. Second, it is desirable to allow learners to intensively watch the recorded video lectures at the time available to them, and it is not desirable to release recorded lecture videos sequentially according to a strongly restricted period.
