Abstract

With the increase of Distance Education in higher education, the concept of Web Conferencing has become a large part of how administrators and educators interact and communicate with their students and/or colleagues in educational institutions across the United States. One example of this occurred at Nova Southeastern University (NSU), Abraham S. Fischer College of Education. This brief paper reports on the experience of one Instructional Technology and Distance Education (ITDE) Adjunct Professor. The ITDE Adjunct Professor explains to one of his former students why and how he experimented with a cloud-based video web conferencing application called Zoom in his distance education courses during the fall of 2014 and 2015. Thoughts from the professor are provided. In addition, suggestions from his former student on how others can incorporate a web conferencing application are shared.
