The present study aimed to examine participants’ perception regarding improvements in education for their return to a mountain village, based on “satisfaction, motivation’s achievement, and effectiveness.” Survey was conducted with 80 participants in 2017, of which 64 valid responses were used for statistical analysis. SPSS 21.0 program was used to conduct descriptive statistics, reliability analysis, factor analysis, and multiple regression analysis. The major findings were that a higher level of “satisfaction regarding the instructor and teaching materials” resulted in a higher level of motivation’s achievement of technology skills, social skills and effectiveness in interpersonal exchange. The findings also revealed that if “the content of education” were satisfactory, there was effective self development. In addition, the higher the motivation’s achievement of social skill, the higher the perception in effectiveness of self development and interpersonal exchange. The study can contribute to provide baseline data for improvement of education on return of people to their mountain villages, which are collaborating with civic groups, governments, research institutions and enterprises.
