Summary form only given. The ability to describe motion is a fundamental skill needed by kinesiologists. The basics of motion analysis are taught in the required biomechanics course. Previously, these concepts were conveyed in a traditional lecture format. Now, active learning using instructional technology is incorporated into the course project. Students learn to analyze human motion by capturing movements of their choice onto videotape and then transferring the images to digital format on the computer. Once in digital format, the students conduct biomechanical analyses to determine the essential elements of human performance. The final projects are published on the web. Although formal evaluation is not yet complete, students report that they value the hands-on learning experience and the acquisition of new computer skills
