Taking the form of autoethnography as interpreted using Cultural Historical Activity Theory (CHAT), this article documents the introduction of synchronous online teaching (aka videoconferencing) at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) as along with everyone else they suspended face-to-face classes during the pandemic. The author reports being able to develop "a 'collaborative partnership' which would not have been possible for me before Covid." He also concludes that while CHAT is not predicting, it "is useful in forcing 'a consideration of the range of factors which impact the use of technology'."
