The purpose of this project is to integrate a Virtual Tours system with four web-based blended teaching/learning course designs for improving students’ independent learning ability for undergraduate/postgraduate programmes. The web-based blended teaching approach includes a blended teaching/learning package (combination of online learning and face-to-face guidance) that focuses on enhancing students’ independent learning ability, and a virtual tour system (built in the course design) which provides a great visual image to help students to observe the operation setting (e.g., observation room in Human performance Lab & fitness room in PE) or motor skill performance without being there in person. The utilization of this innovative learning system creates great opportunities and alternative learning spaces for both instructor and students to enhance teaching and learning effectiveness. The project intends to apply this innovative system to the courses in Health, PE, Fitness room and PE Human performance Lab, and will design several teaching activities to focus on students’ self-learning skills embedded within the web-based blended teaching and learning system. The proposed project will also provide a template which will demonstrate how to integrate the virtual tour system into the web-based blended teaching design in teaching theories of Health and PE, and motor skill courses. Three web-based online learning activity models (Independent Self-learning approach package, Problem solving Learning approach model, and Online collaboration approach model) will be designed and illustrated how to transform teacher’s instructional activities into students’ self-learning and collaboration activities that applicable for the alternative e-learning approach for other subjects/courses in health and physical education.
