The Scottish Parliament is to host a special Q&A with the first minister on Thursday.
Presiding Officer Ken Macintosh has written to MSPs, saying testing has been done to allow party leaders to reach Nicola Sturgeon remotely.
If the experiment proceeds smoothly, there is scope to expand and allow questions to come from all MSPs in the following weeks.
The Presiding Officer wrote: "Like other legislatures, colleagues here have been very busy in recent weeks examining and testing a range of options for virtual working and I am pleased to say that the progress they are making is very encouraging indeed.
"In the first instance, the Parliamentary Bureau is exploring holding a leaders' virtual question time where party leaders can question the First Minister."
The session is expected to take place from 12:30 tomorrow and last 40 minutes.
The Welsh Assembly is to extend the time it remains closed to the public to 31 May.
But virtual proceedings will continue on Wednesday, with more AMs taking part than in last week’s session.
It will be broadcast live online from 13:30 BST.
The assembly said other parliaments from around the world have sought its advice since the first virtual meeting last week.
