AbstractAbstract: Considering the rising costs of higher education (Martin, 2007), video conferencing could be used to cut expenses for education students completing student teaching. It could be an effective tool in allowing education faculty to supervise and interact with teacher candidates at distant educational sites. In this pilot study, two professors of education observed and interacted with a teacher candidate and cooperating teacher by means of video conferencing using Internet Protocol (IP). Advantages and disadvantages were noted for the use of video conferencing in evaluating student teachers. The study results support the use of video conferencing as a potential tool for expanding opportunities for long distance evaluation. However, technology tools would need to be refined and more readily available in school districts for it to become practical.
