Teaching computer information systems via distance education is a challenge for both student and faculty. Much research work has been performed on methods of teaching via distance education. Today we are faced with a variety of options for course delivery. Asynchronous delivery via online or lesson instruction still remains most common. But alternative synchronous delivery methods such as Adobe Connect, Skype, and Eluminate Live are increasingly used as alternatives in a variety of situations and for a variety of purposes and classes. Our study reviews the use of synchronous distance course delivery and reports on specific experiences and results from two computer information systems courses over the past year. Post-class surveys from the students of these courses reveal interesting and useful insights into the acceptance and challenges of synchronous distance delivery methods including emphasis on technical stability and interaction.
