We recommend the following QuarkNet Data Activities for use in remote, online teaching. Comments posted for these adaptations, where appropriate, are accessible to all on this page. The activities appear in the same order as in the Data Activities Portfolio. We assume that teachers will coach students remotely and provide alternatives to paper-and-pencil where needed, espically when a combination of whole-class results is desirable.
Spotlight on QuarkNet e-Labs
QuarkNet has had, since the aughts, a platform that lends itself very well to online and remote learning. Well, two, actually: the QuarkNet Cosmic Ray e-Lab and the QuarkNet CMS e-Lab.
CMS Online Data Analysis
The QuarkNet CMS Ray e-Lab (https://www.i2u2.org/elab/cms) contains a large data set of events in the Compact Muon Solenoid detector in the Large Hadron Collider at CERN and analysis tools for students and teachers to draw physical meaning from that data.
This note introduces the resources to help students and teachers use the CMS e-Lab and to find investigations they can do.
Spotlight on Remote Learning with Data Activities
The "spotlight" last week focused on a collection of resources for teaching physics during this time of distance learning. This week, we highlight a few updates and additions, including some specific data activities that can be modified for distance learning.

Videoconference technology can be a very helpful tool when teaching online. QuarkNet has created several Zoom channels that may be used by any QuarkNet teacher and their students to connect virtually. Please feel free to use any of the channels below. They are first come, first served, so if you enter a channel that is already in use, please exit, then choose another channel.
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many physics classrooms to go online. QuarkNet has collected resources to help teachers in this situation. We do not officially endorse these resources but rather make them available for teachers to evaluate themselves. We do add comments where appropriate.
We've added some "Hat Tips" (H/T) to folks who have contributed resources. This really is a QuarkNet-and-beyond team effort.

Spotlight on Teaching Physics in a Pandemic
Physics teachers are turning to online tools and distance learning to reach their students as school buildings have closed, and we are all staying home as much as possible. QuarkNet responds:
