her lecture, students were able to read and write the Korean alphabet.

later developed into a CD-ROM and distributed by a company called OPA 21, Korea.
objective of the CD-ROM lecture is to help people to understand the des ign principles of the
Korean Alphabet and enable them to read Korean syllables within 50 minutes by using
visual explanation such as graphic illustrations of philosophical concepts. Dr. Kim-Cho’s
ultimate goal is to utilize the Korean scientific writing system as a universal system of
phonetic symbols for other languages, especially for people who do not have a writing
system in their own language.
Despite the objective of the CD-ROM, the communication of the design principles of
the Korean writing system were not well designed when graphically examined. With high
expectations, the author studied visual components to improve the quality of the CD-ROM.
