Abstract: Because of its advantages, Synchronous Videoconferencing (SVC) is widely used to deliver distance classes in education. However, the effectiveness of a SVC class is a major concern to faculty and students. To share experience gained and lessons learned from the design, development and delivery of an undergraduate biology SVC class, this paper covers some critical issues involved in this topic, such as course preparation, classroom interactions, course structure, instructional materials, eye contact, and feedback.
