    Abstract PDF
    Ambulation is among the most important functions of survival for human as a basic motion very closely related to health as well as having characteristics of humans distinguishing themselves from animals rather than simply as a means of mobility. Ambulatory activities help to resolve complex problems such as obesity and the lack of exercise, yet to the contrary, improper ambulatory motion may cause abnormalities such as those in joints, brain, and body structure, so it is ascertainable as to whether a person is healthy, a patient or has disability. Ambulatory activities also convey the language of gestures and express people’s intention and speak for their lives. Such a study of ambulation deals with variables such as ambulatory space, ambulator, ambulatory speed, ambulation analysis, balance, ambulatory skills, ambulatory function, and ambulatory activities across various academic fields of engineering, social science, art, music and physical education, and medicine and pharmacy, gaining attention for over decades. Also, in recent years, as the demographic structure has changed due to the rapid aging of the population, the social interest in health issue connected with physical activity improvements such as ambulatory activities and ambulatory skills of the aged is increasing. However, the analysis of various ambulatory mechanisms is insufficient, so it will be necessary to analyze the correct ambulatory patterns according to gender, age, and disability, and also conduct academic researches of approaching neuromuscular, biomechanical, and motor functional changes. In particular, the ambulatory activities according to the ambulatory speed show a lot of changes according to the age, and these changes may cause injuries such as falls, so studies related to prevention may be said to be very meaningful. Through the process of ambulatory activities, it would be necessary to recognize the importance of ambulation and continue the academic study of the change of ambulation according to the flows of the time. In addition, it will be necessary to suggest directions for correct ambulatory activities to obtain the human ambulatory patterns for health promotion, develop exercise programs which will lead the changes of ambulatory activities in the aspect of exercise function to be applicable to anyone, thereby conducting studies of ambulatory activities of scholarly value extensively. Finally, a suggestion is intended that the ambulatory activities research and exercise program development for the aging population are needed from the perspective of convergence of ambulation while looking at our lives through the ambulatory activities.

    Study on the Teaching Methods for Korean as a Foreign Language by using Mobile Apps focusing on ‘HanTongE’: A Multilingual Vocabulary Translation App

    Jihye Son | RYU PUM MO | 2019, 3(1) | pp.19~33 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The development of technology has made a great deal of research on education using smart devices, which has brought about many changes in the field of education. In particular, interest in foreign language education through mobile apps has increased, and a lot of mobile apps are emerging in Korean language education. However, most mobile apps are built around personal learning, and learners find it difficult to apply what they have learned in the app to their lives. So, in this research, the mobile app for learning has its purpose in order to present the lesson plan used for the class in the classroom, not just end use. To that end, we have described the current state of mobile applications in Korean language education and the educational content of multilingual vocabulary band applications “HanTongE” and “HanTongE”. Based on this, we adopted the method of flipped learning, which is an activity-centered lesson method, and presented an education plan in which self-directed learning and learners are the main subjects of the lesson.

    A Study on the Factors of Website’s Influence on the Organizational Image as Community Medium: Focusing on the SGI’s Website

    In-Soo Kim | Sangyoon Ahn | Chong Hyung Lee and 1other persons | 2019, 3(1) | pp.35~61 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This study intends to search the factor of website, as a community medium, influencing to the image of organization. The survey was carried out members who continued their membership for Korea SGI for one year or more. The survey period lasted for a month from April 2 to May 2 with 169 subjects in total. When reviewing the general characteristics of 169 research subjects, There were more women than men with 84 male (49.7%) and 85 female (50.3%). For age group, 57 (33.7%) subjects over 50 take up the majority. When analyzing the correlation of sex, age, member career, organization image, organization community, fame, satisfaction and sense of belonging, the member career showed the statistically significant correlation in sex variables (p<0.05). This means that women have longer history of membership. Member career (p<0.01), organization image (p<0.05) and satisfaction (p<0.01) showed statistically significant correlation in age variables. Based on above result, this study confirmed website is a medium which allows the communication among members through image. This study is meaningful in that it suggested the evidentiary material which follow-up study can utilize and compare.

    A Study on the Improvement and Revitalization of General Center for Convergence Research Services based on the Integrated Research Center’s Recognition Survey

    Younghee Noh | Ji-Yoon Ro | Youngji Shin | 2019, 3(1) | pp.63~92 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    In this study, the Commission sought to investigate the progress and value changes of convergence researchers participating in the Interdisciplinary Research Support Project of the Korea Research Foundation along with the participation and satisfaction of HubCon regularly held at the Center for Convergence Research based on the researchers' request to promote the improvement direction of services at the Center for Convergence Research in the future and the development of the humanities-based Convergence Research. Briefly summarizing the results of the study is as follows. First, overall satisfaction with HubCon was lower in 2019 than in 2018, indicating the need to redefine the overall meaning and direction of each event held at the Convergence Research Center and set up a window to reflect the opinions of convergence researchers in the process of preparing the event. Second, it is analyzed that the time has come for the reorganization of the support services of the Convergence Research Center based on the needs and demands of the convergence researchers. Third, as the convergence research center has been frequently changed to various research institutes, it needs a stable player who can continuously supplement new services on top of regularized services. Fourth, it is required to provide differentiated support according to the timing of the research by convergence researchers and the problem of occurrence. Fifth, convergence research can create new convergence value by supporting it. Sixth, it is affecting the perception of convergence researchers involved in convergence research. As a center that supports convergence research projects, we should consider what convergence researchers call a “network” really means.

    A QoE Evaluation of Augmented and Virtual Reality Speech and Language Treatment Applications

    Hee June Park | An, Sinwook | Inho Bae and 1other persons | 2019, 3(1) | pp.93~104 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The availability of affordable head-mounted displays has resulted in renewed interest in augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR). This in turn has led to research into users’ perceptions of quality in AR and VR environments. In this paper, the authors report the results of an experimental study that compared the user quality of experience (QoE) of an interactive and immersive speech and language assessment implemented in both AR and VR. To the best of the authors’ knowledge, this is the first work that compares user QoE of VR and AR applications, in particular with a focus on applications in the speech and language domain. Subjective and objective data was captured to assess a user’s QoE. Objective data, such as heart rate and electrodermal activity (EDA) was collected using consumer electronic devices such as the Smartwatch biosensor. Subjective data was captured using a user’s self-reported ratings in a post-test questionnaire. The findings of this study demonstrate similar QoE ratings for both the AR and VR environments. The findings also suggest that users acclimatized to the AR environment more quickly than the VR environment.
