In this paper we briefly inventory some of the traditional educational applications of video, and indicate how the integration of asynchronous video within WWW environments makes those applications more efficient and flexible. Second, we indicate a variety of ways in which the integration of asynchronous video and WWW environments introduces new forms of learning possibilities not available to either medium (video or WWW environments) in isolation. Third, we illustrate these new forms of learning possibilities via the example of a course recently (March-May 1999) completed at the University of Twente.
