Sites choosing to interactively participate in an ITV program may require specialized equipment, facilities, and staffing. Most prepackaged ITV courses use a mass media approach to instruction aimed at the average student. As a result, they can be ineffective in serving students with special needs. When used passively, without interaction, its instructional effectiveness can be limited. Unless professionally produced, completed ITV programs often look amateurish.
