2009 European journal of physics  
The desirability and value of laboratory work for physics students is a wellestablished principle and issues arise where students are inherently remote from their host institution, as is the case for the UK's Open University. In this paper, we present developments from the Physics Innovations Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (piCETL) in the production and technology of the virtual laboratory resources, Interactive Screen Experiments, and the benefits and drawbacks of such
