I am keen to see how Physics teaching can be adequately carried out with distance learning. Many of the concepts are difficult to get across in the absence of face to face and gradual scaffolding of key issues. I use Elluminate with my students but this can be restrictive when the desktop facility doesn't work. Interactive PowerPoints and animations generate much discussion with difficulties (not insurmountable but a potentially significant barrier to learning) in explaining and understanding key ideas.
