Time to Rediscover Isaac Physics?

Initially you have to get used to the fact that it's a huge site, and it takes a little navigation. But once you get used to it, its easy to use. I initially found a bit of student resistance too, but that has been lessening over time - and presumably we're now in a whole new world from that perspective.

and an introductory video here...
