The Ministry of Education, Science and Technology said Monday (Sept. 8) that Korea will host an international e-learning conference in Seoul Tuesday in an effort to help fuel growth in the key information technology (IT) content industry.

The three-day e-Learning Korea Expo will bring 20 e-learning institutions and companies from 12 foreign countries along with 70 domestic organizations. U.S., Japanese, British, Australian and Chinese companies and institutions are to open promotional booths at the event venue.

This year's expo will feature a so-called "ubiquitous classroom," where people can see what the future holds for schools in the form of digital textbooks and other interactive devices, the ministry said in a media release.
