This Evidence Check review found that tele-learning can be as effective as face-to-face learning in achieving educational outcomes, with internet-based technologies such as vodcasting, podcasting and desktop conferencing being increasingly used. The review identified educational methods and technology as two critical success factors in the use of videoconferencing,  and participant preferences, access issues and cost were seen as other key issues.
