  Abstract: In an attempt to improve student learning in introductory physics courses, we have used active learning methods focused on the use of technology. The courses follow a hybrid format where most of the learning occurs outside of class. Lecture time is used to answer and discuss questions and to explore the topics students find interesting. The technologies used include computer-mediated and hands-on activities. Instead of lectures, students complete online multimedia quizzes, embedding both lecture type recording segments and simulations. The quiz is intended to help students focus on the intricacies of the topic covered. Homework is also completed online. It includes both traditional end of the chapter questions and simulation mediated questions. Hands-on laboratory activities are preceded by pre-laboratory simulation-mediated activities. We will describe the methods used and preliminary results on the effectiveness of the approach.
