Abstract

With the accessibility to the Internet and the availability of high-speed broadband connections and general technology infrastructure, Korea has high potential for e-Learning which can establish open and lifelong education for national human resources development. Recently, blended learning has become one of the major trends in Korean corporate trainings. However, there is rare research on blended learning of corporate trainings in Korea. The purpose of this study is to explore current and future trends of blended learning in corporate and other training settings in Korea. In this study, 136 people from training related fields such as HR or e-learning in their organizations participated in this research (note that our team collected parallel data in the UK, US, Taiwan, and China). The findings revealed the current trends and future expectations of blended learning in training settings. In addition, the perceptions of the respondents regarding the benefits of blended learning and the barriers to implementing in their organization were analyzed.
