In this paper, an assessment is done on graduate distance courses in the mathematical sciences based on two formats of instruction: the traditional face-to-face lecturing with e-learning support and the online synchronous lecturing for distance students. It is shown that with a synchronous teaching tool, it is possible to create a learning environment in which distance students are provided with the necessary tools to lift up the level of learning to the same level as what can be achieved in traditional face-to-face instruction of mathematics.
