This article provides a review of past research on K-12 interactive television (ITV) programs in the United States. While the number of web-based distance learning courses is increasing, ITV is still widely used for K-12 learners. ITV allows students to communicate with remote teachers and classmates in real time and to create a learning environment that is similar to face-to-face instruction. The purpose of the article is to examine critical factors for successful interactive television programs and provide suggestions for how educators can best facilitate student learning in ITV environments.
