From the 1990s, the Internet has become a useful and convenient platform. Because of the Internet, the distance between people is closer.With the increasing popularity of videoconferencing around the business world, this technology has also applied in many different aspects from internal company communications, academic teaching, and remote training, to live broadcasting. The technology can help reducing the commute and business cost. In the academic domain, learners can attend the classes from anywhere as long as they are wired to the network. Gradually, synchronous distance learning will be accepted in the schools or universities, and students can get credits via distance-learning such as the distance education in Harvard Extension School.Taiwan is also no exception in this trend. However, even though popularity of the synchronous distance learning, users in Taiwan are primarily concerned with the quality and cost of learning. Therefore, this paper will study the experience in this field in Taiwan.
