The purpose of this study was to investigate participants’ perceived learning and satisfaction with the interactive television (ITV) classroom, the workshop, and the instructor, whether they were at the originating site or the remote sites. The sample consisted of 97 rural health cm providers who attended one of two continuing education programs on Infection Control Update offered by the Missouri League for Nursing. Based on the findings of this study, the following conclusions were drawn: (a) participants at the originating site perceived more instructor verbal and nonverbal immediacy behaviors than participants at the remote sites; (b) participants at both the originating and the perceived positive and similar learning outcomes; and (c) participants at the remote sites originating and the remote sites had positive perceptions about the ITV classroom, workshop, and instructor.
