IIHS-HLDI in the Classroom expands on the topics explored in the Institute’s two popular science education films, “Understanding Car Crashes: It’s Basic Physics” and “Understanding Car Crashes: When Physics Meets Biology.”
IIHS collaborated with the University of Florida College of Education’s Department of E-Learning, Technology and Communications Services (ETC) to create the new site, which includes both films and 11 classroom activities. Each activity features content for students and password-protected teacher resources, including lesson plans and answer keys.
ETC’s role included: front-end website design, back-end website development, videography, photography, and instructional design. The website aims to reinforce important physics and biology concepts while providing students the knowledge to make safe decisions while riding in or driving a vehicle.
“Our team is constantly raising the bar for online learning,” said Jason Dean Arnold, director of e-learning, “This collaboration with IIHS and our faculty is representative of our role in bridging the amazing talent here at the University of Florida with outside agencies to make a greater impact on society.”
The college is recognized for such work, earning number one or two spots in U.S. News & World Report rankings for online graduate degree programs over the last three years.
