Description: Today, universities must compete for students while searching for ways to be more cost effective. Many Universities that have long used the in-residence model for course delivery are now turning to the virtual classroom. On-line or distance learning methods make courses available to a potential student population that would not otherwise be accessible in a cost effective manner. The University of Dayton (UD) has traditionally been an in-residence institution, and many students go home for the summer and take courses from a college or University in their local area. By offering distance learning or on-line classes during the summer, the University of Dayton could attract some of those students to take UD courses. There has recently been some effort to make UD courses available to distant students. Courses in Engineering Technology are currently being offered to students physically located at Edison Community College in Piqua Ohio using videoconferencing technology. There are courses being offered on-line and as study at home by some departments through the University's summer distributed learning program. The Engineering Management Department is currently offering graduate courses using interactive Web Conferencing. However, there were no school of engineering undergraduate courses that were offered in a blended on-line mode. Over the last year, University of Dayton Information Technology (UDit), in cooperation with Engineering Technology and other academic departments, evaluated several Web Conferencing Technologies. This technology delivers courseware with live streaming video and interactive streaming audio web casts. In the summer of 2004, Engineering Technology faculty developed a course in Engineering Economy that took advantage of the Universitys new Web Conferencing system. This course was delivered in a blended learning mode using a combination of synchronous and asynchronous modes.
