Keeping Students Motivated and Engaged
In teaching a lab class, I set up small demonstrations that I can do in front of the webcam involving optics and electronics during the lecture. For example, one can setup an oscilloscope to display on webcam or directly on the computer with shared screen. I would use maybe 10 min of each lecture for a demonstration like that. It's not a great substitute for actual hands-on experiments, but at least students get exposed to some aspects of the physical world.
