The Physclips Project

Physclips provides multimedia resources to physics students and teachers at the levels of senior high school to introductory university. Completed volumes cover mechanics, waves and sound. Each chapter includes a rich multimedia lesson of about 10 minutes, including film clips, animations, sound files and images of key experiments and demonstrations. Contextually embedded links lead to html pages providing broader and deeper support and, where needed, to tools such as calculus and vectors. The ongoing development of the interface reflects learner feedback and our own experience and research. The architecture and presentation of Physclips is largely consistent with evidence-based guidelines in the field of educational multimedia.

Ancillary resources

Designing educational animations, shows how some animations/videos from Physclips would appear with and without research-based principles.

For some primary school resources, see Glimpses of Science.
