“Access to educational and training opportunities for all individuals, irrespective of age, gender, location and personal circumstances, has long been the main raison detre for distance education” (White, 2005, p. 165). Nova Southeastern University (NSU), located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has been at the cutting edge in the development of distance education for the masters degree program in Speech-Language Pathology (SLP).
In the early 1990s, NSU began providing students who lived within the state, but at too far a distance to travel to campus, the opportunity to earn a masters degree using a rudimentary distance model. The instructors for the courses flew or drove to the distance sites on the weekends, and delivered lectures in a weekend long format to the students at the remote sites. This format was replaced, in the late 1990s, by the introduction of video teleconferencing. Students within the state, at various NSU satellite locations, were able to participate, along with campus-based students, in real-time “live” classes via compressed video. This model continues to be effectively used by students from cities throughout Florida.
