`Flipping the classroom’ means replacing the standard lecture with additional hands-on learning — tutorials or labs. We are preparing short, focused videos covering the same material previously delivered as lectures, to become assigned take-home viewing. We plan to flip a period of 3 weeks in a first-year paper that is already intensely practical and handson. A previous move to online tutorials (“eTutorials”) resulted in better learning and the students appreciated the flexibility. Will the same happen with “eLectures”? This presentation will describe our plan and the process undertaken to develop flip videos in the context of an electronics course. We will share some examples of our videos and describe the experience. We may speculate on the outcome.
