Abstract

The typical teaching approach, at least when classes are large, is still the classical lecture. By using the new high-speed Internet lines reaching the homes, it possible is to limit some of the drawbacks of this approach. We run an experiment by diffusing via Internet a whole university course. The course was web-cast (synchronously) and delivered on-demand (asynchronously). We also produced CD's for simulating fast connections for the students who did no have one. We based our experiment on a software developed at the University of Toronto: ePresence. We report here the indications we were able to extract after the end of the experiment.
