Abstract

Distance learning is moving increasingly towards the use of computer technology as a means for distributing courseware, for demonstrations, and for asynchronous collaboration and discussion between students and tutors. Within a short time, however, the ability to communicate in real time using computers will exist for everyone. Multimedia conferencing over the Internet, using live audio, video and shared workspace, has until recently been restricted to the research domain. This paper describes a study in which this technology was used in a remote language teaching application. Small group tutorials were held over a number of months, in which students and tutors of foreign languages were separated by distance, but not by time. The paper discusses the evaluation issues and observations from these trials.
