Physics lecturer creates interactive online modules

Valentino van de Heyde administrates various undergraduate Physics modules, which include both theory and practical. He conducts lectures for the Physics 152 Practical Course; and assists other Physics lecturers, specifically for the Honours and Masters Programmes.

The online courses within the eTeaching environment have been setup to include various elements, namely:
• Embedding Youtube videos; simulations; lab schedules; links to external resources and digital photostories within the content.
• Uploading oral/practical guidelines; open-source textbooks; guidelines on report writing and extra resources within the file manager.

Valentino plans on creating a ‘Physics Animation and Simulation Lab’ as well as an ‘Open Source Library’ for the different categories of Physics modules. He is also planning on recording physics lectures and will make use of Youtube to showcase these videos.

Valentino has attended CIECT’s ICT skills training programmes, namely:
– online course creation; and
– digital photostory.
