History[edit]

The beginning of EBS[edit]

Originally an affiliate of the Korean Educational Development Institute, KBS 3TV / KBS Educational FM (Social Educational Broadcast) was broadcast on the name, December 27, 1990 KBS independence from; in 2000, the Korea Education and Broadcasting Corporation was established and became a public broadcasting station with a reputation. According to the magazine published by the EBS, however, its history is recorded until 1951.

TV school broadcasting[edit]

The 'Radio School' was temporarily suspended in 1962 and resumed the following year, it continued until 1969 with name 'TV School Broadcasting'. However, if the KEDI was established in 1972 and the foundation law of the Korean Education Development Institute, which was proclaimed the following year, is regarded as the basis of the current EBS, it can be regarded as 1974; in fact, it commemorated the 40th anniversary of educational broadcasting in 2014. The main subject of broadcasting was KBS radio, but the subject of production was former Ministry of Education and Central Audiovisual Education Center.

Secondary Education Channel[edit]

However, since the 1980s, the 'secondary education-oriented teaching channel' was established, on June 16, 1980, they started high school TV broadcasting. The broadcasting time was from 11:10 to 12:40 on weekdays, and the rebroadcast was organized from 5:30 am to 7:00 am on weekdays, It was moved to 10:30 because of the public opinion that the time is too late, after that, home high school broadcasting was organized in the late night time and weekday morning hours, and KBS-3TV was officially launched on February 2, 1981.

Public education broadcasting[edit]

For reference, this "regime TV channel launching by regime" is repeated once again in the 1990s, as a measure to reduce the private education expenses since August 1997, "extra-curricular broadcasting" using Mugunghwa 3 broadcasting satellite Conducted. Satellite 1 channel was for SAT and satellite 2 was for middle school curriculum, especially Satellite 1 instructor was great. Lee Keun-cheol (Former KBS 2FM Good Morning Pops host) in English, Lee Won-hee, Lee Man-ki in Korean language, and Park Seung-dong in mathematics, for reference, Susan McDonald, who is the signboard of EBS English conversation and the main character of the Seoul Metro (2000 ~ 2005) and the Seoul Metropolitan Rapid Transit Corporation (1999 ~ 2012) English announcement, showed fluent Korean ability.

Education Broadcasting Corporation[edit]

On March 12, 1997, it was separated from the Korean Educational Development Institute under the Korean Educational Broadcasting System, on June 22, 2000, it was reorganized into Korea Educational Broadcasting Corporation. In December of the same year, we began to broadcast Internet education; in August 2004, the EBS FM broadcast facility was replaced with a digital tapeless system in a conventional analogue open reel tape system.


Promotion to Educational Broadcasting Corporation[edit]

KBS 3TV[edit]

Since it belonged to the terrestrial channel of KBS in the past, it was officially called KBS 3rd TV. Unlike conventional 1TV and 2TV, it started as it is without commercial advertisement, until this time, it was KBS broadcasting, but unlike 1 / 2TV, it was broadcast for education and learning purposes.

EBS Educational Broadcasting[edit]

On December 27, 1990, at 9 am, it became independent from KBS, becoming a separate broadcasting company from KBS and re-opened as EBS TV and EBS FM.

Education Broadcasting Corporation[edit]

In 2000, KBS, MBC, and SBS were introduced to Korea's 4 major terrestrial broadcasters as an independent corporation, Korea Education and Broadcasting Corporation, since then, it has begun providing services for the SAT in 2004, and real-time transmission through IPTV has been realized in 2008.

From public broadcasting to public broadcasting[edit]

It shows fairly high-quality programs in the name of educational broadcasting; in addition, he has been providing a lot of information in various fields such as international documentary, classical painting, independent film, and famous foreign animation. Self-produced programs are also popular. Programs such as 'The Great Dream of the Beautiful World', a youth drama produced every year, and 'Space Empathy', which are now famous are the original programs of the challenging Golden Bell.

These changes have been reinforced since the launch of the Korea Education and Broadcasting Corporation in 2000, and the role model seems to be following the US PBS; in the case of the United States, PBS is operating as a countermeasure against commercialization while private broadcasting is in competition, and even news! If this is the most famous program we know, Bob Ross 's' Let 's Make a Picture' was produced by this station. As seen from the past that started with KBS-3, if it had been operated like NHK educational channel in the past, EBS seems to be the management policy that it will become a social educational channel with utmost publicity like PBS in future.


Slogan[edit]

Though considered a public broadcasting entity, EBS gets most of its yearly budget from advertisements and sales revenue; in 2012, 72.1% of its revenue came from textbook sales, publications and ad revenues on its TV Radio and internet platforms, while the rest came from TV license fees (EBS gets 3% of the total License Fee being collected by the Korean Broadcasting System) and government grants.[1]

Logos[edit]

EBSi[edit]

Launch date: April 1st, 2004

Official website: http://www.ebsi.co.kr/index.jsp [2]

EBSi is a sub-channel and Internet lecture website for CSAT(College Scholastic Ability Test, Korean SAT), since it’s a public enterprise, every lecture including unpopular subject, such as second foreign language (Russian, Spanish, Arabic, etc.), is provided for free. Most of curriculums depend on the published books by EBS, but recently some instructors have their own curriculums.

Instructors[edit]

Most of the instructors are current school teachers, and they are also recruiting some teachers from private lecture websites. Both public and private teachers provide high-quality lectures because:

 For public school teachers, EBSi is the only way to become known, since it’s illegal for a public officer to work at private enterprise.

 For private teachers, they can get famous with giving free lectures.

In 2009, many private teachers are recruited, they gave lectures with their own textbooks, and it was called BOB(Best Of Best). It gained fame, so these lectures were included in EBSi curriculum “CSAT concepts”.

Below is a list of current instructors in each subject.

Lectures[edit]

EBSi has the larger amount of members than any other Internet lecture websites. According to the statistics, there are few people who finishes the whole lecture. (The ratio of completion of lectures is 13.8%, and each lecture consists of dozens of video clips.) This low ratio is caused by free lectures. First, you have to sign up for courses even you would listen to only one video clip. Second, students with high grade prefer paid lectures. Third, the most important, there is an ‘index system’.

Index system[edit]

EBSi introduced ‘index system’ in 2016. There are ‘problem codes’ in each practice problem of EBS textbook. When you enter the code in website, it could find exact point of problem-solving lectures, this system was only in CSAT problems, but recently EBSi applied for every single problem.

On-site lectures[edit]

Most of the lectures are filmed in the studio, and there were some criticisms that the lectures are not vivid or hard to concentrate on. So EBSi conducted on-site lectures, for “CSAT special lectures.” Also, in summer vacation season, there are “visiting on-site lectures” for 12th graders. Literally, instructors visit the school to give lectures, but after “military slander incident”, EBSi abolished on-site lectures. However, it is recommenced since 2015.

Web standardization[edit]

Most EBSi’s service supports HTML5. EBSi is the only internet lecture web site that has web-standardized its page.

It has switched from <Active X + Silverlight> to <PC Player (platform-specific) + HTML5> enabling the lectures to have the same image quality on any platform.

However, in the case of HTML5, some functions are not yet supported. (Full-screen caption function, etc.)

The question bank service is currently in beta service using HTML5.

Most of the services will be converted to HTML5 soon, including formula editing.

Because of these efforts, EBSi is accessible on the Internet Explorer browser, Google Chrome, and even Edge browser.

Books published by EBS[edit]

EBS also publishes various books for students and examinees to study, these books are not textbooks used in schools, but are workbooks and additional textbooks of the current curriculum. Most of the books are linked to internet lectures available for free, these books are a way of studying the current curriculum or advanced levels with little money, and is encouraged by the government.
