Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate the use of synchronous e-learning tools as a supplement to existing methods and strategies employed in online courses at a major university. Eight faculty members participated in the study, implementing four sessions of either Elluminate Live or HorizonLive into their university courses. Data were collected from the following sources: student and instructor surveys, instructor and support personnel interviews and focus groups, direct and participant observation, analysis of event logs and archival records. The results of the research support the use of synchronous web based course systems to supplement existing distance courses allowing educators to build connections with and among students more efficiently and increase the potential for interaction in the online classroom.
