This study was conducted to develop a home-based, online cognitive rehabilitation program that can be easily and repeatedly implemented and integrates cognitive training into daily activities. A program was devised in 3 stages: analysis, design, and development. Specific program contents were determined on the basis of needs assessment and systematic literature review. The developed program consists of general information about stroke, outlines of cognitive impairments, strategies and guidelines of the cognitive rehabilitation program, and a cognitive training workbook. The program appeared to be helpful as determined by validity testing and was found to be satisfactory by users.
