This paper evaluates Interactive Television (ITV) Engineering courses, Statics and Dynamics, from the perspective of host-site students. The study took place at the University of Kentucky during the Spring 2004 semester utilizing survey methods to identify factors that are influential in determining students' satisfaction with a particular course. Although the literature is divided between host-site and remote-site students' satisfaction, this research focuses purely on the host-site perspective. Given the study's focus on host-site students, as well as undergraduate engineers, it is relevant to the growing literature on distance education. Results suggest that ITV course satisfaction depends largely on the nature of the course and course content, the instructor, accessibility of information, and technical equipment consistency.
