LG Uplus, the smallest of Korea’s three telecom companies, has formed an alliance with foreign language education service providers to launch smart education services in foreign languages via Long Term Evolution.
With partnerships with Korea’s YBM Sisa, Edubox and SDA, Uplus will kick off the service in September, featuring native speakers and teachers through its fast and real-time LTE networks, the telecom company said.
The foreign language program will be offered in English, Japanese and Chinese, with education content and materials provided by Uplus’ partners.
Consumers will be able to access the services, which will be running on N-Screen, on any mobile smart device.
This will especially be useful to students living in rural areas where there was a lack of education infrastructure, and the LTE technology has made it possible for all students to get equal educational opportunity, said a LG Uplus official.
