The purpose of this poster presentation is to explore pre-service and in-service 3rd-12th grade teachers’ perceptions of using a synchronous communication program, Elluminate Live!, as an online instructional tool in a four-week online course. Fifteen students (2 pre-service teachers and 13 in-service teachers) enrolled in an online class, EDCI 524 Models of Teaching, in the College of Education at a northwestern public university in summer 2009. Two synchronous web seminars (webinars) were integrated during a four- week period. After attending the two webinars, students voluntarily completed an online survey with nine 5-Likert scale questions and one open-ended question. The findings indicated 90% of the students enjoyed the real-time interactions with peers and instructor and they wanted to have more course discussions. They found synchronous teaching is an effective way to communicate, share, and learn in an online environment.
