Sport Science Online


Studying Sport Science Distance Learning with MMU is a unique opportunity to be involved in an vibrant and stimulating Department. In what we think is a first in flexible learning we have developed bespoke learning resources that are delivered through Apple iBooks. Using our interactive eBooks in conjunction with support from experienced tutors you are guided through the exciting and challenging world of Sport Science.

This website describes the project, introduces you to the development team, and showcases some of the resources that have been created.



Staff from the Department of Exercise and Sport Science at the University's Cheshire Faculty have created interactive eBooks in physiology, biomechanics, psychology and practical skills as the core resources for their undergraduate part time distance learning programme.
