Abstract: This case study investigated the relationship between synchronous web conferencing and course satisfaction in an online class in a public four-year university located at the northwestern United States. A total of 15 in-service and pre-service teachers participated in the study in summer 2009 session. An end-of-course survey including online synchronous learning experience, course satisfaction, and one open-ended question was utilized to collect the data. The results indicated that there was a significantly positive correlation between synchronous web conferencing and course satisfaction by administering SPSS analysis. Additionally, 90% of the students were satisfied with the synchronous integration in an online course by answering the open-ended question. Combining asynchronous text-based online discussion and synchronous web conferencing could ensure more interactive discourses between student-student and student-instructor in the teacher-preparation program of higher education.
