An excerpt from an interesting story in this month's Pictorial Korea:
Online education is now arousing everybody's interest because it affords many people an unlimited opportunity of studying. To keep up with worldwide trends and accord with specific conditions of the country, the online education college of Kim Chaek University of Technology, a comprehensive center of study, has established an online education system using a mobile communications network.
Its officials, lecturers and researchers developed new programs that suit the reality, without relying on old experiences and theories. The new online education system is the system in which students can study in any place and at any time with the help of smart phones. Using cell phones, they can attend all lectures of the college at their convenience and copy necessary study materials into their cell phones and read them at any time.
The system makes it possible to control the studying process of the students and evaluate their attainment by scientific methods. In other words, although students study independently in any place and at any time, it can analyse and appraise the understanding of students in detail while monitoring their attendance in lectures and self-study process based on the new education control program.
Encouraged by their improving abilities through the new education system based on mobile communications networks, the students enrolled at the online college are getting more enthusiastic about study.
