i know a teacher from the 'royal welsh college of music and drama' [1],
who is sometimes using netpd in order to have lessons with his students
remotely (some of his students have been guest students in wales and are
at home now).
if you are interested, i might give you the contact (after his

the main goal of netpd, when using it as a remote teaching tool, is that
you can easily share patches. you cannot edit patches synchronously on
different computers, but if someone made some changes to it, she/he just
needs to change the version tag and then, after a reload, it gets
uploaded to everyone's else computer again.

there is no audio streaming functionality implemented yet in netpd. but
you can either chat using _chat.pd, that comes with netpd, or, if that
is too awkward, there is also irc.
