For online tutorials and demos, I think just posting videos to YouTube
would suffice. But for real-time workshops and lectures, the problem would
be the unreliable Internet connection.
Also, I've noticed that Filipinos generally prefer face-to-face
interaction. I've seen countless times where you ask the audience if they
have any questions and nobody would raise their hands. But after the
lecture is over, a few people would approach the lecturer and then ask
questions. This kind of interaction would be hard to do online.
