During the Fall 2003 quarter, Rochester Institute of Technology offered a graduate course titled “Operating Systems for Telecommunications.” This author facilitated the course which was conducted in two sections. The first section was conducted in an fully asynchronous distance learning environment. The second section met face-to-face (F2F) once a week while conducting the remainder of its activities at a distance over the Internet. This paper compares the two environments and discusses the lessons learned about faculty and student satisfaction and student performance.
