Abstract

Objective: The advent of videoconferencing technology has created opportunities to pool educational resources across different training programs. Methods: The authors surveyed participants and presenters in a seminar series utilizing interactive video-conferencing and a web-based course management system. Results: Trainees with access to high-speed real-time connections rated their experience more highly compared with those who used slower web streaming technology, particularly with regard to the sound quality. Conclusions: Specific recommendations on optimizing the use of video-conferencing and web-based course management tools in the training of residents are offered.
