Ms Chesters did not travel to Canberra for the August sitting week after it was downsized due to the worsening COVID-19 situation.
Parliament House streamed in MPs from around the country for Question Time on Tuesday but heckling was a noticeable absentee from the proceedings as MPs represented their electorates through WebEx.
"The country has been crying out for a change to Question Time for years and this could be the change it needs," Ms Chesters said.

Throughout the sitting week, Ms Chesters is hopeful to speak on the federal government's proposed child care reforms and give a Member's Statement.
"The reforms need to go further and come sooner and I'm not just saying that because I have two children," she said. "It's because they will benefit the whole family.
"I'm hoping to get the call to give a Member's Statement later in the week. It's my first time back after maternity leave and I want to talk about how Bendigo's topped the charts on the vaccine roll-out and why I believe we've done that.
"I think it's because of our local media; they've told the story of how important it is to get vaccinated and where and how to do it.
"A lot of other areas around the country don't have what we have here and that's strong, independent media."
Ms Chesters also praised central Victorian healthcare services for the high uptakes for the vaccine roll-out across Bendigo which saw 52.6 per cent of people aged 15 and over had received their first dose in the region.
"Our health providers have also played a massive part in the roll-out and working with the community," she said.
"The big issues now is supply and I'll be using this opportunity to say just up the road from where I am, they're ready to vaccinate our whole population if they can get the supply.
"It's remarkable that I will be addressing parliament and 400 metres up the road people are waiting to get vaccinated."
