The use of interactive video-conferencing in the delivery of secondary education is a relatively new innovation in Australian secondary education. The use of video-conferencing in industry especially for executive level meetings in large corporations has been around much longer. The Department of School Education in Victoria has used video-conferencing since 1995 (Arms, 1998a). State departments of education in Tasmania, South Australia and Queensland have also examined the ways in which video-conferencing can be incorporated into their modes of delivery. More recently, the New South Wales Department of Education and Training has examined the potential for video-conferencing as a means of delivery of senior secondary subjects to students attending small rural schools.
