ABSTRACT

The fourth industrial revolution society is called a knowledge-based society based on information and communication technology. These knowledge-based societies are called lifelong learning societies that need self-development and adaptation for lifelong jobs rather than lifelong work. The 1980 Constitution stipulated the promotion of lifelong education as a national obligation. Higher education as lifelong education is implemented on the Bachelor's Degree Examination Based on Self-education Program based on the “Act on the Acquisition of Academic Degrees Through Self-Education”, Academic Credit Bank System based on the “Act on Recognition of Credits, Etc.”, Part-time Student System and Cyber University based on the “Higher Education Act” and “Lifelong Education Act”. However, as higher education as a lifelong education was operated in various ways based on various laws, problems about the quality of education and management of learner were raised. And for this reason, higher education as lifelong education was perceived as a means to easily obtain a bachelor’s degree. To solve these problems, each system and statute must be integrated. In order to strengthen the role of lifelong education, it is necessary to build and support a cooperative system for the continuous development of various contents.
