The Development and Evaluation of an Interactive Video Lesson for Use in a General College Physics Course.
Cordes, Albert E.
This report describes the development, use, and evaluation of an interactive video lesson for a community college level algebraic-based general physics class that could be used to demonstrate Newton's laws and the conservation of momentum. The lesson consisted of five mini-lessons including an introduction, a presentation of Newton's laws, a review of the impulse momentum equation, the conservation of momentum, and elastic and inelastic collisions. Students used the lesson and completed evaluation questionnaires. The lesson was also presented to faculty, who completed evaluation questionnaires. Students found the visual images of the video lesson helped to explain the physics principles, and also found that it was helpful to be able to control the pace and review segments of the lesson. They also found the lesson to be enjoyable. Faculty agreed that laser video technology could be used in their courses, but were concerned about the availability of videodisks for a variety of subject areas. Copies of both the student and faculty survey instruments are attached. (14 references) (Author/EW)
