Abstract: Physics education research and engineering education research have developed a plenty of good practices to enhance the students’ learning outcomes. Combining practices together introduces new method to study introductory physics at Tampere University of Applied Sciences. This new method was piloted with 122 engineering students and the results are compared with a group of 105 students educated with a traditional method. In this approach, the routine-like parts of education were transferred to video clips presented in YouTube, leaving time for active learning methods and group assignments during lectures. The feedback from the students is promising and the percentage of students that passed the course was higher than with the traditional teaching.
