The Feasibility of Offering Videoconferencing Courses: Quality Issues and Lessons Learned
videoconferencing, branch campus, pedagogical models, Sloan
Two courses were transmitted between the main and branch campuses of Brigham Young University using the newest videoconferencing technology. One course originated at the main campus and the other at the branch campus, and each were broadcast to the other location. These two courses were evaluated using the five pillars of quality online education created by the Sloan Consortium, i.e., cost, accessibility, faculty satisfaction, student satisfaction, and learning effectiveness. Overall, the technology worked well and instructors and students alike were satisfied with the learning experience. Important pedagogical and technical elements were considered and suggestions for improvement were made.
