While the notion of distributing learning through videoconferencing is certainly not new, the complexity of designing new generation learning spaces that allow for large cohorts of students to be connected presents a very different challenge. Streaming live lectures through videoconferencing equipment has been undertaken by a multitude of universities to bridge the geographical divide between students and teaching staff. However, the interactive engagement of large classes is not so commonly attempted. This paper describes an initiative currently being undertaken by a complex, multi-national university to connect collaborative learning environments across national and international campuses. A pilot study undertaken in 2013 attempted to provide solutions to these uncertainties and develop a model of effective teaching and learning within a technology rich, distributed learning environment.
