Abstract

Online-learning environment can substantially improve student learning and retention of key health concepts. In this case report, we describe our approach for the design of online learning modules to teach concepts in an undergraduate health science/kinesiology curriculum. This report describes our use of these concepts in two lower division and one upper division college courses at a major university in Texas. While our approach is based on our experience in health science/kinesiology courses, we anticipate that this report will inspire educators to explore the use of online learning principles in a variety of college courses.
