Abstract

This research paper is on ways to enhance delivery on interactive television (I-TV) by adopting and adapting radio and television broadcast communication skills and voice management towards effective learning in the virtual surrounding. Although a lot has been reported on the convenience and technological successes of this new mode of delivering knowledge, not much attention has been paid on the act of delivery itself given the assumption that “…I-TV teaching does not require modifications in teaching style and that a teacher can continue to teach just as he or she has in the traditional classroom…” (Hobbs & Christianson, 1997, pp. 184). How do teachers deliver structured knowledge in an environment strikingly different from the traditional classroom? How is it comfortable or significant to talk to an “audience-less” classroom that is void of students' familiar non-verbal cues or body language confirming comprehension or indicating otherwise?
