Abstract

The Horizon Wimba online Web-conferencing voice system was used to facilitate dialogue and decrease transactional distance in a Web-based course. Small-group (< or =6)discussion sessions were held and addressed topics pertinent to clinical practice. Students were asked to evaluate the synchronous voice discussion groups via a Flashlight survey at the end of the semester. Anecdotal and survey responses indicated that discussion groups increased dialogue between faculty and students.
