The Studies in Motion Videodisc: New Uses for Old Media
  Location: KFC Courts
  Date: Tuesday, Aug.02
  Time: 6:00PM - 6:45PM
  Author: Christopher D. Wentworth, Doane College
  Co-Author(s): Amy E. Craig, Robert G. Fuller
  Abstract: "The Studies in Motion" videodisc was an early example of interactive multimedia produced by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and The Annenberg School of Communications for educational use in an introductory college lab setting. While videodisc technology is obsolete, the media produced for this videodisc remains a rich source of material for introductory physics students to explore and analyze. We present several examples of using digitized clips from the original videodisc for introductory physics activities using modern digital video analysis software such VideoPoint and Tracker. All of the original video media and suggested activities are available on the web at the Humanized Physics Project website*.
