Personnel of the Utah Department of Transportation often find it necessary to work together on tasks from remote locations. Since this process adds costs to and reduces the efficiency of task completion, this research project investigated the practicality of desktop conferencing as a low-end telecommunications alternative to the Utah Educational Network and traditional travel to and from meeting sights. To provide a low-end alternative, desktop conferencing technology uses personal computers, relatively inexpensive software, and either ISDN or Internet transmission lines.
