Abstract

This paper details the implementation of a comparative experiment which probes the issue of learning effectiveness vs. absolute amount of learning attained in a web environment, by comparing performance between traditional face-to-face delivered instruction and instruction delivered via distance technology using an asynchronous live-switched multi-camera stream composed of audio, video, and accompanying PowerPoint presentation via the Web. By capitalizing on the latest technological advances in the field of streaming video, the authors implement a method for conducting web based education at a quality normally associated only with dedicated proprietary gear, but in a more economical manner. The net result is a method for conducting highquality web-based education that is more efficient. The authors provide data to validate the method employed.
