Videoconferencing Perceptions: A Survey of University of North Carolina Faculty and Staff

by Lancaster, Kristin M

Abstract (Summary)
A survey of 150 UNC-Chapel Hill faculty and staff members was processed to determine their perceptions of videoconferencing as a form of effective communication. Previous studies have determined that videoconferencing can save time and travel costs for large corporations. This study examines perceptions of three types of videoconferencing: group system videoconferencing, videophones, and desktop videoconferencing. The purpose of the study is to identify the possible motivations for adoption and usage of videoconferencing equipment in a university setting.
