Abstract As computing technologies evolve, teaching advanced computing is becoming increasingly crucial. The target audience, including not only computer scientists but also many domain scientists and engineers, requires an approach that focuses less on technologies and more on fundamental concepts. The most effective approach for this audience emphasizes not technical details but rather analogies, storytelling and play. The strong need for this kind of education, and the wide variety of institution types needing it, have lead to rising demand for remote delivery via videoconferencing, and the high failure rate of many videoconferencing technologies requires multiple simultaneous videoconferencing approaches.
