I propose to discuss the next step beyond synchronous text-based conferencing. Having run synchronous text-based tutoring sessions over the Internet for several years, I am presently experimenting with video-conferencing. Ultimately, I intend to wed the two technologies--to have one window of synchronous video and one window of synchronous text on the desktop. I intend to show a video tape of a tutoring session and then discuss how what we've learned from both text-based and preliminary video conferencing can tell us about more advanced desktop systems which will allow for the use of both technologies.
