The University of Arizona has been providing distance learning opportunities for its students via video based technology since 1972. This innovative approach to education has proven to be economically attractive. Many students have confirmed the pedagogical effectiveness of using remote classrooms. The are still two significant problems, however, with use of this technology. The first problem has been alleviated to some extent by the use of audio feedback from the remote classroom, electronic mail, and fax machines. The second problem can be partially solved if the remote site has Internet access, but the direct interaction is still lacking. More recently, a multimedia architecture using ISDN technology has been proposed, but this is also expensive and ISDN service is not universally available. This paper describes a very cost effective means of overcoming both these difficulties.
