ATM is a high speed, high performance, multiplexing and switching technology that has important implications for distance learning. With its unique ability for transmitting multiple types of broadband communications traffic in a seamless integrated environment, ATM can support networked multimedia, virtual reality, and interactive video applications. Despite ATM's potential for accommodating innovative telelearning paradigms, debate persists in the academic community about whether the time is right to invest in ATM technology. This paper examines ATM capabilities, merits, and limitations. Representative ATM projects in the distance education environment are described. Challenges associated with ATM use in the educational setting are explored. Strategies facilitating ATM deployment for instructional delivery and enrichment are delineated.
