Abstract: This article describes the development of an online education biomechanics module that is based on two pedagogical theories, namely, information processing and constructivism. A hybrid (blended)pedagogical approach was planned for the course so as to facilitate a supportive and affirmative learning environment, as well as to enable participants to have hands-on, real-life experiences in the applications of biomechanical concepts to human motion. Learners may then be able to tap on such experiences when perusing the online content as well as to actively engage in the electronic discussion forums. The module is offered for the first time in the Virtual lnstitute of Training and Learning (VITAL) management system of the Ministry of Education (MOE), Singapore. In subsequent
implementations, refinements would be made to the pedagogical stance of the course based on students' feedback and research findings.
