This presentation explains whether student engagement differs between graduate students taking a course via distance education and those on site by the same instructor using the North Dakota University System's Interactive Video Network. A 14-question (4-point Likert scale) instrument acquired from the National Survey of Student Engagement was used to measure student engagement at the classroom level. The activities are monitored by the instructor in person at the sending site and with rotating cameras at the receiving sites. These graduate students do not have comparable experiences, dispositions, and educational backgrounds with testing, maturity, and experience. A questionnaire has been developed and pilot tested to find how this engagement data relates to the extent graduate students utilized multiple learning activities and how these activities helped in learning.
