This paper addresses how one institution makes use of distance education to offer mathematics and mathematics education courses in its Master of Science in Teaching Program. The courses are offered through a compressed video format where there is two-way communication and interaction with students and faculty. Providing courses in this manner has proven to be quite successful for students on campus as well as those off campus (at the remote sites). It has also been found that students who are at the remote sites perform just as well, if not better, than those on site.
