Creation of OER learning objects (videos and lab experiment materials) for Introductory Mechanics courses.

Project Outcome:

We employed new technologies (tablet video analysis and production) to physics learning in both entry level and advanced pedagogical methods classes in new ways, seeking to extend subject appeal to more students, including hopefully, traditionally underrepresented students. The intervention was iPad (Tablet) based, but we hope to extend to mainstream modern smart camera phones.
