Abstract

Synchronous conferencing systems are under-utilized in most distance learning environments. Appropriate use of the synchronous CMC systems contributes to student satisfaction and active participation in an online environment. This study employed the formative evaluation method to assess students' perceptions toward different CMC systems. The systems are divided into three categories: text-based chat, audio-video conferencing, and virtual reality applications. The results of the study indicates that, among all synchronous CMC systems employed in this study, text-based and virtual reality conferencing systems are more efficient for synchronous online learning.
