  Abstract: We describe the iPad video physics project at SUNY Buffalo State College, in which we used a class set of iPads to support student learning of introductory-level physics content both in traditional undergraduate courses and graduate-level courses for physics teacher preparation. The iPads were used both for traditional digital video capture and model fitting via Vernier Video Physics, and for the production of student physics content multimedia presentations via iMovie and iMotion, akin to abbreviated YouTube videos. We report student feedback, some pre- and post- standardized student conceptual learning scores (BEMA, TUG-K and FCME) for the courses, instructor comments and lessons learned.
