This paper focuses on the results from several evaluations of a pilot Realtime Writing Program as part of a CANARIE Learning project called BELLE (Broadband Enabled Life-Long Learning Environment). This program, the first of its kind in Canada was offered to students across the country using multiple delivery methods. On-line evaluations were administered to students in two levels of the course to assess their experiences and satisfaction with the delivery methods. Students also participated in a focus group. The instructor was interviewed prior to and after the course to evaluate any pedagogical changes needed to successfully teach in a multi-modal environment. The outcomes of this multiple delivery method were also measured by the interactions among learners and their instructor.
