Current Projects
Digital Hwa-Kang - e-Campus
The Digital Hwa-Kang - e-Campus is a broad project utilizing interactive multimedia information technology to create a better campus. Through the e-Campus, users access our integrated information services. e-Campus automates and standardizes operation procedures to reduce process time for routine administrative information and actions, and improve the cost-effectiveness of administrative, academic and community services. e-Campus helps university members to communicate and understand each other and to form a shared vision. e-Campus also facilitates online research, teaching and learning activities - to foster lifelong, geographically distributed education across campus and around the world.
