  2. 2. Content 1. Introduction 2. Theoretical Background 3. Research Method 4. Research Results 5. Conclusion and Discussion
  3. 3. Introduction 1. <ul><li>49,000 undergraduate degrees and 8,700 graduate degree (2009) </li></ul><ul><li>Total 19 cyber universities and 10,2000 enrolled learners (2010) </li></ul><ul><li>In the Open University, the U.K’s online higher educational organization, the continuous registration rate is only about 50% (Simpson, 2003). </li></ul><ul><li>Learning in a cyber environment has a completion rate 10-20% lower than that of a traditional learning environment (Herbert, 2006) . </li></ul>Perceived Learning Persistence Cyber education problems Cyber University in South Korea
  4. 4. Introduction 1. <ul><li>Numerous studies on how to improve perceived learning persistence… </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Few studies have created a structural explanation of the casual relationship among the multitude variables affecting perceived learning persistence. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The studies examining multiple variables affecting perceived learning persistence in online programs limited their approach to the conceptual framework only . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Many research studies suggested the desirability of simultaneously considering internal variables and external variables (Packham, Jones, Miller, & Thomas, 2004; Rovai, 2003) </li></ul></ul>Previous studies reported that internal locus of control and perceived institutional support control(Parker, 1999; Liu, Lavelle, & Andris, 2002) are important in perceived learning persistence Internal Locus of Control Flow Perceived Learning Persistence Perceived Institutional Support Very important learning outcome variable, which can success or failure(Martinez, 2003) Status maximizing one’s potential ability to complete activities and project and induces a superior learning outcome(Taylor, Schepers, & Crous, 2006). Purpose of study
  5. 5. Theoretical Background 2 . Learning persistence is a state in which learners continually participate in their educational programs and complete their courses, processes, and degrees to arrive at their educational goals (Müller, 2008). <ul><li>Important emotional variable that determines success or failure in the cyber environment (Martinez, 2003). </li></ul><ul><li>Provides important information for determining the appropriate directions for organizational decision-making and educational program management (Willging, & Johnson, 2004). </li></ul>1 Definition 2 Critical issues Perceived Learning Persistence
  6. 6. Theoretical Background 2 . 1 Definition Flow is a status in which one simultaneously feels subjective satisfaction and happiness, which increases one’s potential for performing one’s activities and projects (Csikszentmihalyi, 1990). 2 Critical issues <ul><li>Feel pleasure in the learning process and participate more actively, acquiring a sense of satisfaction and achievement in the learning process (Clarke & Haworth, 1994). </li></ul><ul><li>Maintain a positive emotional state and are likely to participate aggressively in learning, to select projects with a higher level of difficulty, and to concentrate on the learning situation (Skinner & Bermont, 1993). </li></ul>Flow
  7. 7. Theoretical Background 2 . <ul><li>Locus of control is the degree to which a person believes in their ability to control events and behavioral results that happen in their lives. </li></ul><ul><li>Rotter(1966) - internal locus / external locus </li></ul><ul><li>Levenson(1981) - internality / powerful others / chance </li></ul>Administrative support and positive support from the educational organization can bring about positive learning outcomes, such as perceived learning persistence (Chung, 2000; Lee, 2003). In corporate educational environment, organizational support consists of superiors’ support, colleagues’ support, and positive organizational atmosphere. 1 Definition 1 Definition Perceived Institutional Support Internal Locus of control
  8. 8. Theoretical Background 2 . Recent Research Trends Variables Previous research in cyber education Exogenous Endogenous Internal Locus of Control Flow <ul><li>Keller & Blomann (2008) </li></ul><ul><li>Taylor, Schepers, & Crous (2006) </li></ul>Perceived Learning persistence <ul><li>Parker (1999) </li></ul><ul><li>Parker (2003) </li></ul><ul><li>Morris, Wu, & Finnegan (2005) </li></ul><ul><li>Martinez (2003) </li></ul><ul><li>Liu, Lavelle, & Andris( 2002) </li></ul>Perceived Institutional Support Flow <ul><li>Maurer, Weiss, & Barbeite (2003) </li></ul>Perceived Learning persistence <ul><li>Martinez & Munday (1998) </li></ul><ul><li>Zirkle (2004) </li></ul>Flow Perceived Learning persistence <ul><li>Clarke & Haworth (1994) </li></ul><ul><li>Kim & Lee (2005) </li></ul>
  9. 9. Theoretical Background 2 . Internal Locus of Control Perceived Institutional Support Flow Perceived Learning persistence <ul><ul><li>Internal locus of control and perceived institutional support of cyber learners will affect flow directly. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Internal locus of control, perceived institutional support and flow of cyber learners will affect perceived learning persistence directly. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Internal locus of control and perceived institutional support of cyber learners will affect perceived learning persistence indirectly by intermediating flow. </li></ul></ul>H1.

  10. 10. <ul><li>W Cyber university is one of the first online university in South Korea. </li></ul><ul><li>It has been systematically conducting cyber education. </li></ul><ul><li>An overall evaluation of Korean cyber universities has selected it as an outstanding cyber university (Korean Department of Education, Science, and Technology, 2007). </li></ul><ul><li>It has many classes about Korean traditional culture like Korean Costume Science, Oriental Medicinal Cosmetics and Arts, Tea Culture Business, etc. </li></ul>Research Method 3 . <ul><li>W Cyber University was founded in 2001. </li></ul><ul><li>Every year, it has recruited about 900 students, including transfer students, for its 14 departments. </li></ul>Research Subjects

  20. 20. Conclusion and Discussion 5 . Internal Locus of Control Perceived Institutional Support Flow Perceived Learning Persistence <ul><ul><li>Institutional support did not directly affect learning persistence. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Most of the relevant previous studies only theoretically discussed the relationship between institutional support and learning persistence. Also, e-learning systems of W cyber university is not sufficient to support cyber learning efficiently. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Flow intermediates the relationship between internal locus of control and learning persistence, institutional support and learning persistence. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hoffman and Novak(1996) suggested that concrete support strategies are all necessary for flow. </li></ul></ul>Conclusion
  21. 21. Conclusion and Discussion 5 . <ul><ul><li>Other variables that affect learning outcomes need to be examined in future study. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Also, further studies can utilize various other indices, such as achievement, satisfaction, participation, etc., as learning outcome variables. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>We did not base learning persistence on factual student drop out data but on the learner’s emotional state. Therefore, we recommend further research on individual dropout. </li></ul></ul>1. 2. Recommendations
