    • Audio-low-scan TV teleconferencing
    • Interaction is added using response terminals to allow the learner to select specific pages , answer questions or determine the waiting time.
    Video Conferencing Systems
  • 8.
    • CYCLOPS
    • Developed in the Open University in 1976, to help students and tutors write, draw and communicate with each other.
    Video Conferencing Systems
  • 9.
    • Telematics
    • A one-way television that transmits instruction from teacher to students. Interaction is established through a free call-back telephone enabling students to communicate directly with the teacher during broadcasting.
    Video Conferencing Systems
  • 10.
    • Full audio- video-conferencing
    • A fully interactive television system that supports two-way communication using audio and video between or more two groups.
    Video Conferencing Systems
  • 11.
    • Full audio- video-conferencing
    • Sites are connected using telephone lines, local network or satellite.
    Video Conferencing Systems
  • 12.
    • Desktop/Web video-conferencing
    • A two-way audio-video conferencing system supported by one or more computers connected via the Internet using desktop client or the Web.
    Video Conferencing Systems
  • 13.
    • Advantages of video-conferencing
    • The ability to meet with the distance teacher without incurring travel expenses.
    • Provide real-time and visual interaction simulates face-to-face interaction.
    • Supports interaction between individuals or groups.
    Video Conferencing Systems
  • 14.
    • Limitations of video-conferencing
    • Needs to be associated with other forms of materials . These materials need to be distributed to students to use during or after conferencing.
    • Due to the high rate of visual signal, many technical problems still face full video-conferencing systems, such as bandwidth capacity and high cost .
    • Restricts the type of content that can be delivered.
