Video conferencing provides a viable means to link remote classrooms of students together synchronously when distance prevents place-bound students from attending face-to-face classes at distant campuses. Instructors of remotely connected, multi-site classes find presentations using this delivery medium to be challenging. Student presentations are oftentimes omitted as a result. This study examined the classroom to classroom student presentation potential via video communication software in Teacher Education courses at a large southern USA university. During the semester undergraduate pre-service Teacher Education courses were required to present individually and in groups using video conferencing tools. Students were queried for their level of satisfaction with the presentation process. The results suggest that students viewing presentations remotely expressed equitable satisfaction to students viewing presentations locally within the same class, and that differences in presentation satisfaction perception were more likely due to the presenters’ quality of presentation or ability to engage an audience.
