dc.description.abstractA preliminary study was completed that measured the operational and technical feasibility of video teleconferencing (VTC) at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS). As a part of the fact-finding effort, a VTC Round Table was convened in order to define the nature of the problems that prompted NPS to consider VTC as a possible solution. Potential opportunities for utilizing VTC to improve the quality of education offered by NPS were discussed, and various alternatives for installing a system were considered. It was concluded that the operational and technical feasibility were convincing enough to justify the continuation of VTC implementation at NPS. The economic aspects were viewed to be of secondary importance because case studies indicate that the quantitative benefits such as travel displacement have been overshadowed by the qualitative gains such as increased productivity. This study recommends that NPS move ahead with its plans to implement a "full-feature" VTC system and install it in a new academic building currently under construction. Additionally, this study acknowledges the findings of the draft DoD instruction "Teleconferencing Activities, Systems and Networks" which endorses the use of the Federal Telecommunications System (FTS) 2000 for long-haul network services. It is recommended that NPS utilize the FTS2000 Compressed Video Teleconferencing System (CVTS) for its VTC needs, and lease the VTC equipment with an option to buy.en_US
