The Distance Learning Prototype Lab (DLPL) at Saint Francis University's Center of Excellence for Remote and Medically Under-Served Areas (CERMUSA) was established in 1999 to explore and demonstrate how the merger of a variety of telecommunications technologies (video production, computer graphics, the Internet and teleconferencing) can improve the pedagogy, quality, and distribution of education and training in distributed learning environments. While the specific numbers have varied from study to study, there is general agreement among researchers that people retain approximately 20% of what they hear, 40% of what they see and hear, and 75% of what they see, hear, and do (Amthor, 1996). Simply adding visual content to existing lecture material and classroom activities would seem to be a simple way to take advantage of that potential for increased retention, but that has not been the case.
