The power of video as a teaching device is, of course, that it can deliver much more information in a shorter period of time than any other medium. The added benefit is that you can also pause, rewind, and re-play the tape. But until the introduction of streaming media, the user had to download the entire video or audio clip, which would take several minutes (or hours), before they could play it. It was simply impractical as a web-based teaching technology.
But now, with the proliferation of
inexpensive broadband services, organizations are finally able to use
video as a viable distance education and training strategy.
