Moreover, e-quality was considered because of the problem of ssability originated from the environment that a lot of information and products are given at online business. This study employs a survey method to empirically test the proposed research model. A survey questionnaire was developed and 100 responses were collected. The data were analyzed using PLS method, a structural equation modeling method. The results of the study indicate that e-quality, interactivity, and trust influence switching barrier and that the switching barrier affects virtual relationship, which has an positive effect on loyalty. This study provides valuable theoretical and practical perspectives that e-quality is the most influential factor on virtual relationship and that, of the three factors of switching barrier, the virtual relationship is the most effective one to prevent customers online from changing their main online shop for products.

The objective of the study was to evaluate the impact of the Call System of agricultural extension services in Korea. The respondents were satisfied on the speedy solution (74.5%), consultation (88.4%), and accessibility (79.7%) of the call system. However, satisfaction of farmers on in-depth consultation was higher (74.3%) than the satisfaction rated by the public servants of RDA (48.9%). Both groups replied positively (70.4%) on the need for expansion of the call system. The analyses of the results leads to a conclusion that there is a need to increase marketing on the importance of RDA's Call System to customers of agricultural extension and to improve accessibility through expansion of the system in other areas. These could solve the decreasing number of extension professionals and improve the quality and efficiency of extension services. These analyses may be useful as bases for a nationwide Call System that connects the center with other districts and for planning a renovation of information-oriented agricultural extension services. The issue that needs improvement is to abandon the grounds of agricultural technology information provider and respond to the customers' needs efficiently by building an established Call System which can minimize the side effect of the trends of reforming and downsizing the organization. It is needed to develop a unified management Call System of agricultural technology information that could provide real-time information, and database the results simultaneously for use as feedback to the Rural Development Programs. Related laws and policies need to be improved to establish a nationwide information network that maximizes the current network in agricultural regions to spread information, to provide institutional support, and to encourage development of training system and research and development by concerned institutes.

Journal of Agricultural Extension & Community Development, volume 15, issue 3, 2008, Pages 499~531
Rural Traditional Theme Villages are one of the village-based businesses, which obtains excellent results. However, it also has brought negative results such as splits in locals due to income disparity, and ill-advised development which does not consider surrounding potential resources, etc. So, this study analyzes several problems of Rural Traditional Theme Villages, and proposes how Rural Traditional Theme Villages can be revitalized by benchmarking other successful cases. First, it is important to pursue differentiation of operating programs for Rural Traditional Theme Villages. Second, it is possible to give weight to elements which show efficiently rural atmosphere to enhance images of Rural Traditional Theme Villages. Third, expanding budget support and securing a new route for budget are definitely needed to cultivate self-growth capability of villages. Fourth, it is necessary to apply experts and facilities of local-based universities, cooperate with relevant organizations, and nurture local leaders by various means such as study in/visits to advanced regions at home and abroad and experts training. Localgovernment should be in charge of nurturing talented people. Fifth, it is necessary to reinvigorate rural economy by networking each Rural Traditional Theme Village, providing a wide range of information on diversified villages to people in cities, and promoting consumption. Moreover, securing immovable customers is important through networking city-rural exchange with city consumers and other organizations, and sisterhood relationship, membership businesses and events. As mentioned above, it is expected that Rural Traditional Theme Villages will be able to be developed continuously as a model for rural revitalization, which is stagnant, by expanding city-rural interchange.
