Dear Biomch-L subscribers,

We have produced a series of eight videos detailing how to set-up and record video of sport/exercise activities suitable for use
in a two-dimensional analysis.

Whilst the videos were developed primarily for undergraduates studying biomechanics on sport and exercise science courses, they
could also serve as a valuable resource for students in other areas of biomechanics that require knowledge of video analysis.

The videos can be viewed on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/BiomechanicsMMU

A trial of using the videos to prepare a group of undergraduate students for a lab session resulted in positive student feedback.
An article discussing these findings can be found here: http://www.celt.mmu.ac.uk/ltia/issue15/burden.php

We are very interested in an evaluation from the wider biomechanics community. To this end we have created a short online
questionnaire (http://FreeOnlineSurveys.com/rendersurvey.asp?sid=fw9p1gmnaqxq8el455538). Once you have watched all/some of the
videos we would be grateful if you could spare five minutes to complete the questionnaire.

As an incentive to complete the questionnaire we will be giving away three copies of the videos on DVD to randomly selected
respondents (to enter simply provide your contact details).

The questionnaire will be available until Monday July 7th.

We have also created a YouTube group called "Biomechanics - Education" (http://www.youtube.com/group/BiomechanicsEDU) which you
are invited to join and add your own relevant content to.

Please feel free to forward this e-mail to anyone you know who may be interested.
