|Title:||Lecturers' perceptions of Videoconferencing as a tool for Distance Learning in Higher Education||Contributor(s):||Smyth, Robyn (author); Stein, Sarah (author); Shanahan, Peter John (author); Bossu, Carina (author)||Publication Date:||2007||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/4540||Abstract:||This paper explores the findings of a study into the potential usefulness of videoconferencing at one of Australia's leading distance education universities. The University of New England (UNE) is a regional university with a long distance education tradition and high reputation for supporting distance learners. The study included an online survey and interviews of participants in four diverse case studies. It occurred early in the adoption of Internet-based broadband videoconferencing and was intended to provide base data and initial insights into the potential for the technology to be useful in a distance education setting. Since the study was concluded, several off-shoot projects have commenced. These projects support the initial conclusion that Internet-based broadband video conferencing has great potential for supporting distance learning and learners.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||14th International Conference of the Association for Learning Technology, Nottingham, United Kingdom, 4 - 6 September, 2007||Conference Details:||14th International Conference of the Association for Learning Technology, Nottingham, United Kingdom, 4 - 6 September, 2007||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the 14th International Conference of the Association for Learning Technology||Publisher:||ALT: Association for Learning Technology||Place of Publication:||Nottingham, United Kingdom||Field of Research (FOR):||100599 Communications Technologies not elsewhere classified||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||890106 Videoconference Services||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.alt.ac.uk/altc2007/
