From the Paper:

"The use of technology in instructional delivery in nursing schools has become more and more common in this interconnected world. The Internet provides immense opportunities for the use of such technologies, as many educational institutions are now using these methods to teach those who may not be able to attend traditional classes in a normal classroom setting. The next logical step for many nursing schools has been "expanding their find a solution that would allow them to make their course available via the Internet" (Dimaria & Ostrow, 2004, p. 42).
"The use of web-based conferencing is becoming much more popular today, and in essence is a virtual classroom. This is a great advantage for students who have educational conflicts due to employment schedules, childcare, and/or transportation considerations, which have been common barriers to achieving an education for many.
Since the advent of the "iPod", "pod casts" have been a popular means of obtaining video and audio from the Internet. A student can access and download a lecture from a designated website at the student's leisure, and listen to or view the content at their convenience."
