This article describes two projects that utilized technology in teaching university-level courses in developmental psychology. Both projects were based on principles of constructivism, active learning, and problem-based learning and utilized video technology to create modules (filmed videos) that students in the course used as learning tools. These learning tools were accompanied with learning resources such as a series of questions (challenges) as well as supplementary resources (suggested bibliography and/or websites). The second project represented a conceptual evolution of the first project by providing students with increased opportunities for constructivist learning and community building. Students rated both projects highly in terms of their ability to increase their interest, knowledge, and engagement in the area of developmental psychology as well as their sense of community with their peers.
