    I agree, it doesn't have to be just staring at a screen, but it very well can be.  

    The outcome, as always, depends strongly on the student.  My point is that indirect cues of the state of the student are difficult to read remotely.  Realtime, live interaction helps in recasting ones approach while teaching.  You can do this on-the-fly as needed.  Sure, sometimes the situation renders this not possible.  As with any electronic/digital approach, it's one of many possible tools to use and you need to employ the best tool for the problem at hand.

    My own experience is that it is all too easy to allow focus to drift in remote electronic experiences.
