CBNU Information & Computing CenterCBNU has evolved along with radical high-technology society. You can search for information and use various services such as registering for courses through smart phones with wi-fi wherever you go in the school buildings.
The CBNU Information & Computing Center is the most important institution of these developments. The CBNU Information & Computing Center was founded in the Electronic Computing Center on November 4th, 1997. It was constructed for electronic calculators and related systems, and has now taken shape: the headquarters and educational practice building that were completed in 1999. This center provides students, teaching staff and local residents with teaching information literacy. It also has played an important role in developing and managing the portal system and OASIS 2.0 since 2010. Now, what about looking deep into the CBNU Information & Computing Center?
CBNU Web-mail (http://mail.jbnu.ac.kr)
One of the familiar services of the Information & Computing Center is web-mail service. Any member of CBNU can use web-mail service through joining to be a member. The purpose of web-mail service is reducing the data management time and improving efficiency by operating a combination POP3 mail with web-mail system. You can relieve anxiety originating from spam mail and computer virus infection. Plus, it is such an important system that provides members with permanent accounts and makes it possible to contact each other simply. A certain capacity is given to users: 2G to a teacher, 1G to an employee, a part-time lecturer or a graduate student, 500M to an enrolled student, and 200M to alumni. If you don’t use the service for 6 months without an exception within 2 months, your account could be eliminated.
CBNU Web disk (http://webdisk.jbnu.ac.kr)
This is a data storage system on the Internet, and you can use an individual web storing place for educating students, researching, and dealing with administrative tasks effectively. A certain capacity is given to users: 500M to an employee, a student, part-time lecturer, or a researcher, and 300M to a contract worker. Like web-mail service, you cannot use web disk service with a dormant account or when you should change your position such as by graduation and appointment. In particular, it is a very useful service for students who have a lot of homework and material to be arranged.
Online Software Rental Service (http://sw.jbnu.ac.kr)
Do you know how to use software that is not downloaded on your computer? You can use many programs without installing them on every computer through the online software rental program. Furthermore, you can borrow CDs, including every Window OS program (except server programs), NAMO web editor 2006, and every MS Office program. You can borrow them at the 401 headquarters of the Information and Computing Center, basically for 4 hours.
What the CBNU Information & Computing Center is leading most ambitiously is the Mobile Campus. You can use the academic and library information service anytime and anywhere interlocked with a wireless mobile environment. It consists of a wireless LAN business that is installed with JBNU services, accessible through free wifi, and contains business which lets students use the existing wire service wirelessly with mobiles and PDAs. If you download a mobile student ID, it is possible to manage library access, seats, searching for and borrowing books and theses, and even registering for courses and checking your grade. Furthermore, the Information & Computing Center is trying to provide students with diverse and convenient services including web-mail, university notices and phone numbers of CBNU institutions through mobile campus business.
Besides these, the center provides a homepage wizard system which enables institutions, departments, and professors to make and manage their own homepages and gives quick service to deal with obstructions in network service and questions online. It also supplies a mass-mail sending machine and survey system.

<An Interview with Park Soon-cheol, the chief of the Information & Computing Center>
Q: Give us a brief introduction about yourself.
A: As I have been a professor in the Division of Computer Science & Engineering for a long time, I have lots of knowledge about computers. Also, I showed leadership as I operated Jeonbuk Silicon Valley Research Center. I think that’s the reason I became the chief.
Q: What special things does the center have?
A: This center developed the information system that unifies the school’s administrative tasks in late 2012. As this system is set up well, other universities visit the school to learn it. Also, we have a ‘computer history hall’, and it is the only one among Korean universities. It has many documents about computers which have been made since the 1970’s. Last, we installed a wireless LAN throughout the school. Therefore, everyone can use the internet through mobiles or computers conveniently anywhere.
Q: What lecture do you recommend the most?
A: It is ‘Mind map’ which is given as part of reinforcement business of educational capability. It is a program that organizes someone’s thought as spread a map. It is very useful for planning or arranging. Also this lecture is fun to learn, and take only 10 hours to take certificate.
Q: What will this center do to improve?
A: First, we will employ great teachers to serve high-quality education. Second, we will change the old network environment to a new one. Third, we will interact with the school headquarters actively.
Q: What do you ask students to do?
A: This center bought a lot of accredited software which is used frequently by students, so instead of using illegal software, use ours. Also, people would require perfection even though technology can’t meet their expectations. We try our best to service the system quickly, but sometimes it can’t do well inevitably. If students understand this, we can concentrate more to develop the school’s system.
<An Interview with Hyun Jin-young in the Dept. of IT Applied System Engineering>
Q: How satisfied are you with the Information & Computing Center?
A: The first semester, my academic advisor told me to get a certificate, and he introduced the Information & Computing Center. So I got four certificates. The class opens when the number of attendees is over seven, so we can easily communicate with teachers. Also, they teach us the tendency of questions so we can easily get certificates.
Q: Please recommend one class among the classes you attended.
A: I recommend the class only for learning, not for getting a certificate. For example, the C-language class moves at students’ own rate and their own progress. If the student feels it is too difficult to understand, the teacher slows down, and if the student can easily understand, teacher moves faster. I really had a lot of help after learning C-language. But the classes for certificates necessarily move fast because of the exam scope, so I want you to listen to what you want to learn.
Q: What is the difference between the Information & Computing Center and private educational institutes?
A: A private educational institute has a lot of students, so you can’t concentrate on your study and teachers can’t teach each student. But the Information & Computing Center has small-sized classes, so teachers can guide individuals. Also, you can use the facilities in the Information & Computing Center whenever you want. Moreover, the tuition is much cheaper than at a private educational institute
Q: What new class do you want most?
A: I want to learn Java, script language and presentation but I can’t listen to those classes because of the insufficient number of students. So I hope all students together as well as students in the computer majors listen to these classes and learn a lot of computer information. It is not too much to say that this is the age of the computer.
Up until now we have learned all about the Information & Computing Center which is in charge of CBNU’s important system. Let’s take a high-quality lecture from the center as the 21st century is the information age. It will help to improve your computing ability and to get a job.
