Abstract

This paper reviews some preliminary experiences of the use of Desktop Video Conferencing (DVC) within a multi-site Initial Teacher Training Institution. The limitations of asynchronous communication such as email and the potential of synchronous communications such as DVC are appraised. Examples of actual and potential DVC are described alongside the attendant benefits derived from both practical experience and research evidence. Consideration is also given to the realities of setting up DVC, such as firewall issues and resource implications including hardware and software.
