is not a panacea. Video conferencing can help the learning process in that it enables distance learning. Also, stellar professors may be heard on the other side of the planet

does not measure up to face to face meetings. Some research has been done which suggests there is a reduced amount of eye contact and it is simply not a
substitute for a live lecture. At the same time, ordinary video instruction can be helpful and cost-effective. Still, online learning without interaction lacks many attributes of the live environment.
Thus, while video-conferencing has its drawbacks, it is the next best thing to live classes. II. Statement of Interest A student writing on this subject will want to
explain his or her interest in the topic. Here, it seems that a student has had negative experiences with online learning. Online learning, or learning on ones own, can be

feels stuck when a question is broached, will not learn well in the home environment. Yet, the two way teleconferencing seems to resolve some of the problems inherent
in learning through simple audio or video instruction. It would appear that if interaction is a part of a program then the situation could resemble a live classroom, and
