Video conference is accessible in many situation and every learner can access gust have
video conference tools (camera ,mic ,and pc). Also, video conferencing is very flexible if you
want to use it in group situation and it's very effective.
The cost of video conferencing depend on the tools that user utilize it. For example some
universities forced to use high quality tools for video conference to provide good learning
quality, otherwise student will not pay more.
By the way ,video conference is cheap medium if you compare it with other distance
3. Teaching and Learning
Video conference is the appropriate way for distance education because, it provides
auditory and visual learning and in same time and provide virtual learning environment
like the real one. Teachers can see and talk with their students and discuss live same face to
Also as i mention video conference used easy tools can each students provide it like camera,
computer PC microphone and software.
My opinion it will be the famous method use to distribute the distance learning.
4. Interactivity and User-friendliness:
It provides synchronous and asynchronous interaction because it could be alive or you can
record the lecture and broadcast it later. Moreover, any learner in anywhere and with
different cultural can use video conferencing.
5. Organizational Issues:
Organization and Institution requires new technology in learning. but sometimes if it
provide the materials for student free, it ignore a lot of important things like:
-It doesn't use new and effective software but use old and cheep software and that cause
many problems to reach materials for students and get bad resolution if the materials
provide pictures or video.
-Another thing is they did not provide in support for technical problem or it come too late.
But if you bay for them the service become much better.
I think the novelty in this new technology is the interactive telecommunication which
allow two or more locations or people to interact via two-way video and audio
transmissions simultaneously, also this technology allow learner to transfer and exchange
the files easily.
All of this things should motivate learner and gave them more opportunities to learn and
that keep video conference unique in distance eduction.
The materials in video conferencing could distribute the courses in short period and short
time by using internet. Actually, materials updated immediately during the discussion live
or during participation.
