This paper focuses on how video classroom environments impact teaching over distance. An evaluative study was conducted with individuals who use, administer and provide technical support in MPEG2 video classrooms. Results from surveys, in-person and telephone interviews provide information as to the advantages and disadvantages of teaching with collaborative environments. Results provide insights into what support mechanisms are needed for successful usability of collaborative classrooms. Recommendations are forward looking and encompass both the technological and pedagogical needs associated with the use of collaborative environments for distance education. Administrators, technical planners and educators need to work together on the development, design and sustainability of collaborative environments in order to effectively enhance distance education opportunities.
