In the Internet age, the distance between instructors and students who are earning distance learning courses can be thousands of miles, across multiple time zones, in different cities, states or even countries. There can be many forms of distance learning programs such as there is a “Distance learning Web portal” over the Internet and students and instructor interacts with each other using portal, Email system can be included for messaging, forums can be introduced for discussion, online “drop box” for submission of assignments, chat software can be used for live conversation.

In most of the distance learning program students starts studying by watching streamed Videos, downloading course materials but most of the time there is lack of face to face interaction.

In March 2008 COMSATS started a distance learning program initially for MS students of Management science department. What made that program different from tradition distance learning programs was the use of video conferencing technology for face to face interaction among students sitting at remote sites. A web portal was also deployed for student registration and for the access course material/lectures.

Similarly since 2010, Development studies department of COMSATS Abbottabad is also utilizing video conferencing technology for meeting and to deliver lectures from COMSATS Abbottabad to Norway University and vise versa on regular basis.

Besides this our video conferencing facility is also open for schools and colleges of area. CPSP and ATH are also utilizing our video conferencing facility for their meetings and educational purposes.
