Abstract:It is true to say that we all experienced a considerable milestone by the advantages that technology has provided us in every segment of life and academic world. Though, it was highly likely that the field of architecture and education have been influenced by those changes experienced by societies.
Architecture, as is its origin, is such a dynamic discipline that always keeps itself up to date. But, whether or not our traditional architecture education programs at higher education institutions keep up with the advanced technology of the day is the question that scholars are keen to find considerable answers. In traditional architecture education programs, project development courses are being held by face to face interaction with students. In the second phase, theoretical aspects are followed and supported by computer software and technical drawings. Therefore, both instructors and students need to be available there in the workplace at the same time. However, the same course can be handled without physically being in a lecture room by means of high long distance software technology. In this regard, this study will mention the advantages and disadvantages of embedding long distance software technology in architecture education courses.
