Abstract

The main issues that need to be considered for successful blending of distance students into the on-campus classroom is discussed. A significant challenge commonly faced is how to remain flexible in presenting course materials while still having notes and other handouts in electronic format available before the lecture. Other challenges include creating and using lecture material that can be viewed at low resolution and low bandwidth, and getting distance students to interact with the instructor, on-campus students, and fellow distance students. In order to integrate distance students with the traditional on-campus student population, it is imperative to modify teaching styles and lecture plans.
