EBS Internet Service
The EBS Internet service (EBS) was launched by the Korea Educational Broadcasting System (KEBS) in 2004. The major purpose of this service is to promote the quality of public educational services and reduce the citizens' economic burden of private education. This service provides online lectures for high school students preparing for a national entrance exam for higher education. It offers the students high quality learning materials and helps to reduce the educational gaps between regions and people of differing social status. In order to enhance the service in 2010, KEBS recruited outstanding teachers in design, development and delivery of online lectures. It also began to offer learners differentiated courses according to their level of proficiency, and to provide a mobile service using smart phones.
