Video chat offers new possibilities for enhancing teaching and learning. Video chat is not the ideal method for online education if:
* students need time to respond to an online education session
* students cannot all be available at the same time
* tutors need time to plan their session.
However, there are three reasons why video chat should be used in online education:
* to make sure the message is transmitted immediately
* to get instant responses to online education sessions
* to allow learners to see and hear each other. Video chat allows more personal communication.
