Project background

The project "Physics in a nutshell" is an eLearning website for advanced topics in physics. It is addressed to all learners and teachers who deal with topics of physics that go beyond high school knowledge. The explanations and mathematical derivations are complemented by as many visualizations (graphics and 3D animations) as possible to improve understanding and motivation for learning. Extensive use of literature references enables users to review and deepen their knowledge. Due to the responsive design of the website, the learning portal can be used comfortably with a wide range of devices.

Personal contribution

I had the first idea for the project in 2014. During my Bachelor's degree in physics, I noticed that there were only a few helpful online learning resources related to advanced topics of physics. Due to my interest in graphic design and teaching, I started with the content and design conception as well as the web programming of the learning portal. In the course of this, I programmed an admin area, through which the content can be managed and expanded easily. In several steps I further developed and simplified the design concept. Various optimizations have contributed to high rankings of individual pages of the portal in the common search engines, leading to large numbers of visiters from all over the world.

The large number of self-created graphics and 3D animations makes the content more digestable and promote understanding as well as learning motivation.

All content is optimized for various screen dimensions as well as printing. Scalable vector graphics and optimised mathematical formula rendering enable high resolution and small file sizes at the same time.
