Our Masters of Exercise Science http://exsci.ecu.edu.au is offered entirely
by online external mode and it has an introductory and advanced biomechanics
units. Both units tend to use strength and conditioning examples as this is
the focus of the degree but the content is general. I believe that people
can just do individual units without having to enroll in the whole degree
but would need to check on this.

Dear Dr. Boettcher,

Indeed, there is distance learning course on Biomechanics under
The development started 2 years ago in the EU project "cEVU" Cooperative
European Virtual University). It will now be continued under the new
EU-project "REVE" ("Real European Virtual Erasmus").
The REVE-project manager is Annemie Boonen at EuroPACE in Leuven. Her
e-mail: annemie.boonen@europace.be.
I am interested in discussing the further developments with you and all
other people interested.

Yours sincerely,

Georges Van der Perre
