Under a previous grant (2005-2008) we designed an interdisciplinary inquiry-based laboratory course in sports kinesiology, taught simultaneously over the Internet for undergraduate students at the University of Gothenburg and at Stanford University. Student groups developed their own research questions, conducted online distance experiments, processed their unique data with support from an interdisciplinary global network of expert consultants, and presented original scientific results. We will demonstrate one virtual experiment that is central to the course to conference attendees and present a unique set of interactive learning tools for the scientific process. This student-conducted experiment was first tested in a laboratory in Stockholm in 2007, and broadcasted live to three universities, with experts and students actively taking part via Polycom and Marratech. Real-time communication was possible in all directions through a moderator in Stockholm. Our course model seems to improve student learning outcomes while advancing the field of sports science.
