Physics Lectures

I have a plan to never lecture in my class again!!! What I plan on doing is lecturing at night while my students are in the comfort of their own homes or maybe while they're waiting for football practice.

Tools of the trade: For the motion sections I used the Presentation tool in Google Docs and a Wacom tablet I borrowed from one of our art teachers to write on the screen. I really need to buy one of these. I'll probably buy the Wacom Bamboo (Small) because I can get it for around $60. If I want to pay $100 more I can get a bigger one. What I really want is the Wacom Graphire Bluetooth Tablet. Then I could use it while I walk around the classroom.
