Background/Objectives: The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of an image-based creativity/personality education program using a digital curation system on prospective engineers, prospective designers and preservice early childhood teachers. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The subjects in this study were 240 selected students who majored in media engineering, visual design and early childhood education in colleges located in the city of Busan and South Gyeongsang Province. Findings: First, when the image-based creativity/personality education program that used a digital curation system was provided for the prospective engineers, the would-be designers and the preservice early childhood teachers, the program had no significant effects on the creativity of the prospective engineers and designers, but that had significant effects on the preservice early childhood teachers. Second, the image-based creativity/personality education program that used a digital curation system had no significant effects on the personality of the prospective engineers and designers, either, but the program had significant effects on the preservice early childhood teachers. Application/ Improvements: To produce more generalizable results, more sampling is required from broader regions. In the future, sampling from more extended areas is required.
