This paper reviews a distance learning project implemented at Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, a small private college, to deliver a nontraditional, part-time Doctor of Pharmacy program using interactive video conferencing for students located at two sites. Although it was not a complete match to our needs, this technology was chosen in response to a mandate to replace videotape because of consistently negative feedback related to lack of real-time participation. There was both significant potential and considerable risk in our decision. From the start we had difficulties with the system configuration, lack of knowledgeable technical support from the vendor, training issues, networking/connectivity difficulties, and overwhelming environmental problems with our broadcasting space. What we learned during a very difficult implementation of new technology is worth sharing with others who may be considering a synchronous distance learning solution.
