The e-Government in Korea has made such good results as improvement of official work productivity and citizen service quality. However, e-Government in Korea involves many problems and subjects to must solve, especially, at the side of citizen services. Every public organization as supplier provides each service of themselves to the civilians. Citizens feel inconvenience yet, because they must visit and are supplied various civil services to one public affair from several public institutions. When we consider the paradigm shift of the e-Government service, the status and problems of the e-Government in Korea required more better service model to the citizen. To realize the citizen oriented service, the integration and linkage of the system infrastructure and applications among governmental organizations are required. In this changed situation, when new one/non-stop service model of the digital government is developed and launched, the e-Government can supply better service to the citizens. In this study, the model that we suggest is among the new service models of the e-Government, named the Integrated Civil Service Model. The e-Government involving the Integrated Civil Service Model can make more outcome, such as better civil life convenience, cost-effective results by processing time and cost reduction for public affairs of citizens.

This paper tried to discuss response of local government facing governance era. Governance is intended to introduce a variety of residents' participating systems to revive the citizen's society and strengthen the foundation for that purpose, thus seeking the paradigm for decentralized operation of the nation. As widely accepted, governance has many meanings connected with controling method of interdependence activity. However bureaucracy do not make decisions as one-side and vertical like past but is form of public decisions that stakeholder in policy. Firstly, we reviewed the terms of governance and policy issues and policies on governance. And also survey on actual performer associated with governance in Gumi. Next, proposals of the development of policy in governance, role of local government are made in terms of construction of governance.

Jung, Soon-Mo ; Baek, Hyeon-Gi ;
Journal of Digital Convergence, volume 6, issue 2, 2008, Pages 41~53
This research is to redefine the concept of Good School and to validate an effective Good Secondary School Scale in Kyung-gi Province and Seoul. As statistical methods, SPSS 13.0 and AMOS 5.0 were used. Item Analysis and Exploratory Factor Analysis(EFA) were conducted to test the reliability of items and the factor structure. And Confirmatory Factor Analysis(CFA) was conducted to test the validity and fitness of the Good School Scale. The outcomes are as follows: First, six factors(school environment, curriculum, teacher, school-based management system, director) will increase the good schooling effectiveness. Second, As a result of Confirmatory Factor Analysis(CFA), the goodness of fit indices(GFI AGFI, CFI, RMSEA) demonstrate statistically significance and fitness of the model. The final Good School Scale supports 6 Good School Factors obtained in main test. Therefore, we can say that this scale can be used as a valid instrument to measure a real Good Schooling Effectiveness at the secondary school situation in Korea.

Nam, Ho-Hun ; Yang, Kwang-Min ;
Journal of Digital Convergence, volume 6, issue 2, 2008, Pages 55~64
The Internet possesses not only features of mass media but also features of word of mouth communication. Communication channel is considered as one of most important variables in diffusion process. In this paper, we examined functionality of technology diffusion on the Internet through the use of meta tags. We have measured the coefficients of the Bass diffusion model which has been well-established in new product diffusion. This research shows that the Bass model is appropriate for describing technology diffusion on the Internet. The external influence as represented by the coefficient of innovation was found to be much smaller while the internal influence dominates in all meta tag diffusion. In meta tag diffusion, the internal influence as represented by the coefficient of imitation was increased at least twice bigger than that of consumer durables and information technology. Collecting necessary data in social sciences research can be a burden. This research shows that it can be alleviated through the use of software agents over the Internet. The research made use of software agents for collecting longitudinal data from publicly accessible archive such as Archive.org.

Journal of Digital Convergence, volume 6, issue 2, 2008, Pages 77~86
This study investigated how the franchisor's supportive activities influence the franchisee's loyalty and consequently their perceived performance in the franchised restaurants. The study found that the franchisor could increase the franchisee's loyalty through supportive activities and the franchise performance in results. However, the franchisor's advertising and promotion supports did not influence the franchisee's loyalty increase, but increase the franchisee's perceived performance. In summary, supportive activities such as efficient franchise system and advisory activities could be a starting point towards high franchise performance.

Kim, Sung-Whan ; Kang, Im-Ho ;
Journal of Digital Convergence, volume 6, issue 2, 2008, Pages 97~105
This paper tries to measure the spill-over effect of the production and investment of telecommunication service industry (hereafter telecommunication industry), using the most recent data of 2003 input-output tables. The results are summarized as follows. First, the industries which have the biggest spill-over effect from the production of telecommunication industry is miscellaneous business service (including the sale commission of telecommunication service), other engineering services (including royalty), and business consumption. Second, the production of telecommunication industry induces more value-added, and less production, less import, and less employment than related industries such as radio and television equipment, communications and broadcasting equipment, and computer and peripheral equipment. Third, while the investment of telecommunication service amounts to 15% of its production, the effect of the investment on production, value-added, consumption, and employment reaches 70% of that of its production. The policy implication of this paper is that the telecommunication industry contributes to overall economy mainly through its investment.

Lee, Sun-Kyu ; Lee, Ung-Hee ;
Journal of Digital Convergence, volume 6, issue 2, 2008, Pages 107~115
This paper aims to examine the main factors of the job embeddedness on organizational citizenship behavior and job performance. To accomplish these purposes, the main factors of the job embeddedness such as fit, linkage, and sacrifice were found from the previous studies. The questionaries of 250 were distributed to the employees working at the Gumi Industrial Complex. The questionaries of 220 were obtained and 204 were analyzed through frequencies, correlation and multiple regression. The results of this study are as follows; First, we conducted exploratory factor analysis for three constructs (fit, linkage, and sacrifice) using oblique rotation method that did not assume independence among the factors and main factors of job embeddedness were grouped together by three factors. Second, it is shown that three main factors of job embeddedness have a positive influence on the organizational citizenship behavior and job performance (p<0.05). This study, however, have limitations of number of sample and survey area. The future study should consider these limitations in improving model applicability in practice.
Simulation Analysis for Configuring Web Clusters
Kang, Sung-Yeol ; Song, Young-Hyo ;
Journal of Digital Convergence, volume 6, issue 2, 2008, Pages 117~125
High-volume web sites often use clusters of servers with load balancing as a way to increase the performance, scalability, and availability of the sites. Load balancing, usually performed by load balancer in front of such clusters, is a technique to spread workload between several computers or resources, in order to get optimal resource utilization or response time. In this paper we examine the performance for several configurations of cluster-based web servers using a simulation approach. We investigate two types of buffering scheme (common and local) for web clusters and three load balancing policies (uniformly random, round robin, and least queue first), using response time as a performance measure. We also examine two basic approaches of scaling web clusters: adding more servers of same type or upgrading the capacity of the servers in the clusters.

Kim, Se-Min ; Ha, Tai-Hyun ;
Journal of Digital Convergence, volume 6, issue 2, 2008, Pages 127~134
The aim of this study is to show that using a Web-Based Instruction system is a better method to help counteract deficient teaching, learning conditions and facilities thus improving the students' interest, understanding, participation and skill development in Physical Education. The key findings of this study are as follows; The first advantage of using this system is that the theory of Softball is explained with the use of pictures rather than text, thus improving the students' understanding. The second is the method in which practical skills are explained and demonstrated. Action image sequences are used as opposed to the old method of using stationary pictures. This means that the learners can clearly see and understand why and, more importantly, how to use these skills. The third advantage is the technique used to teach the application of these skills. Using active rather than passive learning and thus engaging the student encourages improved participation and learning. The fourth advantage comes in evaluation: both subjective and objective questions are asked in theoretical evaluation, and the teachers can evaluate the students' understanding and skill development by filming their actual Softball games. The final advantage is the use of Self-Directed Learning to aid learners' development of understanding of the lesson content as interactions between teachers and learners are constructe

Journal of Digital Convergence, volume 6, issue 2, 2008, Pages 135~143
The remarkable growth of the Internet since mid-l990s has expanded the e-learning market and brought the transformation of educational environments and methodology. It can be said that the e-learning has changed the educational paradigm. Korean government is firmly determined to support the diffusion of e-learning because of the benefits of e-learning. People seem to accept the e-learning when its contents have high quality. A lot of research have been conducted on e-learning, however, it was mostly about user's usage intention, satisfaction and educational effect. It can't seem that sufficient research efforts have been put into figuring out the role of e-learning contents quality in the expansion of e-learning. In this paper, we present the empirical study on the influence of e-learning contents quality on user's satisfaction and educational effect. We conducted an questionnaire survey on college students to collect data and found that the quality of e-learning contents has significant influence on the users' satisfaction.

Journal of Digital Convergence, volume 6, issue 2, 2008, Pages 145~155
The purpose of this research is to investigate the effects of the Cyber Home Learning Motivation Factors on its satisfaction and activation through surveying the actual conditions among the students present at a cyber home learning class. For this study, samples were collected around the end of a term from the students(300 in pilot test and 248 in main test) who were taking Cyber Home Lecture at high school level. Structural equation model by AMOS 5.0 was used to analyze the data. The result of our analysis is summarized as follows. First, the cyber home learning satisfaction has a positive effect on the cyber home learning activation. Second, the 4 factors of the cyber home learning motivation: relevancy, self-confidence and satisfaction has a positive effect on the cyber home learning satisfaction. But the factor 'attention' has no positive effect on the cyber home learning satisfaction. Therefore, the Good Cyber Home Learning Contents should provide the information quality which meets 3 conditions: relevancy, self-confidence and satisfaction.
