Technologies for teaching at a distance are expanding rapidly. Though web-based delivery, using the computer and Internet, has attracted substantial interest recently, other technologies, like full motion video compression, continue to provide alternatives to the Internet. Factors such as quality of delivery, cost effectiveness and convenience of operation have shifted the emphasis away from high cost video compression systems. Nonetheless, web-based classed taught at a distance provide significant coverage but lack components such as full frame video that allow students to see the teacher during synchronous delivery. The essence of "real-time" instruction is simulated with DVC, though at a fraction of the cost of video compression systems. Desktop video conferencing synthesizes the best features of all distance learning delivery systems, resulting in a technology that provides a variety of applications for the participating institutions. This paper explores desktop video conferencing as the "next generation" distance learning technology, comparing faculty and student preparation time, initial and maintenance cost, and effectiveness of instruction.
