The remarkable popularity of Web-based applications featuring text, voice, still images, animations, full-motion video and/or graphics and spiraling demand for broadband technologies that provision seamless multimedia delivery motivate implementation of asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) in an array of electronic learning (e-learning) environments (Parr & Curran, 2000). Asynchronous refers to ATM capabilities in supporting intermittent bit rates and traffic patterns in response to actual demand, and transfer mode indicates ATM capabilities in transporting multiple types of network traffic.
