Vernier video analysis® The app and new eBook help students learn important physics concepts in in-person and distance learning environments
BEAVERTON, Oregon, June 8, 2021 – Vernier Software & Technology has improved its Vernier video analysis application with new features and now offers support Vernier video analysis: movement and sports e-book for introduction to physics at the high school and college level. Students can now learn key physics concepts and engage in video analysis in in-person and distance learning environments.
Available as a free 30-day trial and for a site license subscription, Vernier Video Analysis allows students to use their Chromebook ™ or other mobile device to insert video with recorded motion and score points for following. the moving object. The app generates precise and visually rich graphics that reflect recorded movement for students to analyze.
“Being able to analyze video on their own device, like a Chromebook, is a huge benefit for physics students today,” said John Wheeler, CEO of Vernier Software & Technology. “Vernier Video Analysis allows students to quickly and easily analyze motion and think critically about the data they’ve collected. Additionally, by capturing their own videos, students are more engaged and better able to retain concepts they learn during investigations in the lab, in the field, or at home.
Vernier Video Analysis application, which won the software award 2020 Technology and learning Excellence Award, is compatible with multiple devices and platforms, including macOS®, iPadOS®, iOS, Windows® 10, Chrome OS ™ and Android ™. Using any of these devices with the app, students can now use prepared videos or collect their own videos and conduct experiments that cannot be performed with sensors, such as tracking a basketball in flight, analyzing the vertical drop of a roller coaster or following the movement of a ball as it is juggled.
The feature-rich application further includes an automated calculation of the center of gravity location which is useful in 1D and 2D collision studies, replay functionality for students to play back the video showing the data points at the as they are added, the ability to trim part of a video for easier viewing, an export function allowing students to save a video image or graphic image to insert into a report from laboratory, and more. Automatic object tracking simplifies analysis of long videos and a vector overlay connects the movement to the manual representation.
The accompaniment Vernier video analysis: movement and sports e-book presents 12 surveys using Vernier video analysis. In addition to traditional physical concepts such as speed, acceleration, and motion of projectiles, research in sports science expands learning possibilities and further connects the study of motion to the daily lives of students.
