From print-based instruction, to radio and television classes, to the use of on-line resources and web-based instruction, distance learning has come a long way. Video conferencing is the latest and most significant milestone along this path of innovations. Unlike its predecessors, video conferencing offers educators and students, for the first time, the uniquely significant ability t achieve bi-directional interaction; that is. Face-to-face and voice-to-voice communication from teacher to student and students to teacher, using a laptop or desktop computer, running over any general purpose IP network. Without having to incur time or costly travel expense to provide or receive this opportunity, students and teachers can convene more easily than ever before. Furthermore, any teaching session can be recorded and viewed by the student who was unable to attend the class.

For students, there is a now a vastly increase choice of classes that has until recently been limited because of logistical inconvenience, access to skilled instructors, and travel time. For educators, video conferencing lends itself to a team approach to teaching and enhances the ability of teachers to meet and collaborate. Instructional video conferencing has been shown to decrease the amount of student absenteeism from class and allow increased and more personal monitoring of student attendance, progress, and success.
