Abstract

For courses that are delivered synchronously, the standard delivery system for decades has been some form of videoconferencing. Modern videoconferencing systems operate over the Internet, rather than on dedicated connections. In the past few years, however, the increasing availability of broadband connections has made web-based conferencing a viable, and often preferable, alternative for the delivery of such courses. This session explores experiences with both venues in teaching graduate level MBA courses and compares them with regard to a variety of instructional approaches and activities.
