ABSTRACT

This study is a research conducted on the influence of the elderly learners based learning operation management quality factors, learning achievement, and engagement in terms of lifelong education for the ICT era. They also have physical health and learning ability to perform both the online and offline education (blended learning) at an average age of 66.3 years for a total of 68 senior citizens enrolled at K Broadcasting and Communication Middle School located in K province. Examining the relationship between the learning operation management quality factors and the learning engagement of the elderly for online learning of regular middle school curriculum, the learning content was the most important factor. This implies that education must be provided according to the intellectual level of the learner, and education needs to be conducted in line with the learner’s eye level based on the learning content which satisfies the learner’s requirements. Furthermore, the greater the learner’s learning engagement, the greater the perceived learning achievement, as it was investigated. Hence, it would be necessary to provide various support services in the course of learning to ensure that the learners can engage themselves in learning. This study is meaningful in that it places emphasis on the need of expanding lifelong education for the elderly and discusses it as an expanded concept that can contribute to addressing social problems caused by an unprecedented increase in the global population and improving the quality of life for the elderly. In the future studies, it is recommended that a detailed study on the effect of education on the quality of life of the elderly through the comparative studies between the elderly who attend regular school and the general elderly who do not (welfare center, college for senior citizens, and individual study, etc.) be carried out.
