  • A good classroom instructor regardless of their experience may not be effective in the video classroom environment, unless . . .They alter their message to the medium.What is the difference? There is an intrinsic skill to use every medium. Distance education in general and videoconferencing in particular bring considerations and challenges not encountered in classrooms bound by four walls, but it can also make learning more accessible, relevant, and exciting To be successful in providing videoconference education, you will need to have the following qualities: be passionate and enthusiastic about educating your students; believe in the possibilities of videoconferencing while being aware of its limitations; be flexible; and be prepared to put in lots of time and thought. The most important things for a good instructor are not what he/she teaches; the most important things are what kind of learning will actually occur and how it will occur.The challenge, then is to see that a part of each lesson or course you prepare – and the activities you plan for each part – is prepared in a way that enables the distance learner to understand the concepts enough to see application in their real world real estate practice.

  • Demonstrate enthusiasm toward the subject matterVideoconferencing participants will find it difficult to pay attention if the subject is not presented in an interesting way or if the facilitator is tense or bored. Get beyond the "talking head" model and make the session as interactive as possible. Use a participant map to specifically address your students or other participants. After the first few minutes, they will forget the technology and focus on the subject.Speak in a strong, clear voiceTake advantage of the system to communicate naturally, using inflection and body language. It's not necessary to yell. It is even more important than usual to wait for the other person to finish speaking. Things can get really confusing if there are multiple participants all speaking at once. You may need a Proctor or some pre-designated plan for controlling who has the microphone. Other participants should mute when they don't expect to be speaking. Don't forget that remote participants can still hear everything until the call is completely disconnected!Allow time for viewing graphics. Display text material (i.e. chart or list) long enough for a slow reader to read. Non-text material often requires less time (3-4 seconds). Obtain written authorizationUse of copyrighted material in a distance learning situation requires permission, so obtain clearance before broadcasting audio-visuals.
