In teaching kinematic analysis of mechanisms, there are few formulas but much that can be called “process.” To convey process in a static set of lecture notes can be very difficult. Therefore, in this paper, a more dynamic method of kinematics education is presented, which involves using screen-capture software to record the audio and visual process of the instruction as it takes place on a touch-enabled or tablet computer. This allows dynamic instruction to be asynchronous; it can occur in class, be archived for after class, and be prerecorded for so-called “flipping” of the classroom. Recent experiences using this method to flip the kinematics classroom are presented and preliminary outcomes summarized.
