This study investigates video Tele-education as an effective instructional delivery mode for three graduate degree programs at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) when faculty attitudes, student attitudes and administrative staff attitudes are measured. A quasi- experimental case study comparing two delivery methods, resident and Tele-education, was conducted. Data for student attitudes were obtained by archival student opinion forms used by NPS. Data for faculty and administrative staff attitudes were obtained from online surveys. Follow-up personal interviews were conducted as required to clarify respondent answers. Faculty, student and administrative staff attitudes were measured comparing instruction delivered by distance learning mode using video Tele-education and traditional mode using the standard resident classroom. Qualitative and quantitative methods were used for analysis. The case study provides NPS and other academic institutions valuable lessons to help build or improve their distance education programs.
