1) Effective support for remote learners:

Teleconferencing can be very useful when most of the potential students are widely scattered among communities that are far apart and when each centre has a learner population, say less than ten students, on a given course or programme.

2) Cost effectiveness:

The cost for starting and operating an audio teleconferencing system is relatively low in comparison with other available methods of serving remote learners.

3) Flexible system:

The system used can be adjusted quickly to serve large or small group.

4) Familiar instructional mode:

The mode of instruction is similar to that the seminar with the instruction being incharge of the discussion and able to simulate multi location interaction.

5) Easy scheduling adjustment:

A scheduling adjustment can be made almost as readily as for-no-campus classrooms.

6) Multi-locational access-control:

Access to the instruction or programmes can be controlled through a limited number of off-campus centres.

7) High-quality instruction:

The quality of the instructional materials can be maintained high because of the need for careful and early preparation.

8) Immediate feedback:

The teleconferencing system provides the facility to the learners for immediate feedback and to convey their reactions to the tutors.
