Time and place utility and the requirement for spontaneity

by Jacqueline S Scerbinski
The Quarterly Review of Distance Education ()


This research brief addresses the quandary that arises when distance learners require both time and place utility, and prefer live interface. The development of the hybrid course, which incorporates elements of time delayed and instantaneous interaction, is seen as a response to instructor and student scheduling conflicts. Faculty and student preparation for a delivery format that utilizes electronic communication is addressed as well as instructional strategies and delivery methods. Equipment requirements are suggested. There are proposals for further research into the question of what subject matter is suitable for distance learning and the need to incorporate emerging technologies into the process.
