Sammanfattning (abstract):
We are designing a course to be taught simultaneously at Göteborg University and Stanford University. We will present two approaches to creating a virtual environment in sport science experiments that are central to the course. The first virtual environment allows students at any location to utilize Marratech web-hosting software to conduct real-time experiments in venues as sophisticated as Lundberg Laboratories in Göteborg and the Stanford Human Performance Laboratory. We have conducted two trials to validate the feasibility of this design, which accommodates simple technologies such as a laptop and consumer devices at the participant site. The second virtual environment is a computer-generated biomechanics laboratory that will allow students to conduct experiments of their own design. Both Göteborg and Stanford will collect motion capture and force plate data on Olympic-caliber and professional athletes. Students will manipulate this data to conduct novel biomechanical investigations under the direction of a set of learning models under development.
