On January 1, 2020, Paiknam Library introduced two new E-Learning contents for students. Now available on the Paiknam Library official website, these contents are distributed by SERI&U and Hackers. SERI&U provides current news on business ideas such as the Fourth Industrial Revolution, business economy, trends, and leadership. Hackers, on the other hand, is a well-known institution for learning foreign languages, including English, Chinese, Japanese, and so on. The addition of these two contents makes a sum of nine different E-Learning contents now available online. These lessons are open for all faculty members and students at Hanyang, including those taking the semester off. Lee Byung-dae, the Deputy General Manager at Paiknam Library Research Information Team, encourages more student usage of E-Learning contents. He stated, “The biggest advantage of taking these online courses is that they are free of cost for all Hanyang students. Whereas students normally have to pay to take these lessons, the school takes care of the fee for them as a group.” There is a wide variety of different courses students can take online. In fact, these courses are renewed on a yearly basis depending on their popularity. The least popular ones are replaced with two or three new contents after reviewing student usage for a year. Some of the most popular, as Lee revealed, are lingual lessons and exam prep for certificates. Learning a new language or preparing for exams can oftentimes be burdensome on the students due to its high cost. By
taking advantage of Paiknam Library’s online courses, students can both reduce the cost of learning and become more equipped for their goals.
