Abstract

With the level of synchronicity now available to virtually anyone with access to a telephone and a computer, one would expect that the technology that revolutionized the way businesses communicate, would also find its way into distance education programs. However, due to the current commitment to educational convenience that has been institutionalized in asynchronous DE programs, little, if any, progress in integrating audio and videoconferencing tools into distance education has been made. One could argue that distance education is in the midst of a communications revolution that is in search of a cause.
