Abstract : This research examined selected distance learning and videoteleducation (VTE) literature to determine the factors Navy health care executives, administrators, and instructors should consider before implementing VTE technology. The literature and interview with VTE users revealed the lack of an explicit theoretical framework or conceptual scheme to root VTE research findings. To remedy this fundamental problem, this report provides a conceptual scheme of VTE use based on administrators' and instructors' conceptualization of VTE; VTE measures of effectiveness; and the rules that evolve about VIE and its uses. Finally, the report provides five major lessons learned about VTE that are derived from the literature review.
