The purpose of the study is to examine contribution of the experimental course materials and course activitiesproduced from video records of physics experiments carried out in an elevator cab on learning efficiency inphysics course. Quantitative research methods comprise the study pattern. The study was carried out in twodifferent schools. Experimental group consists of 27 students, while control group consists of 46 students. In thestudy, data was collected by applying “Demographic Questionnaire, Virtual Experimental Questioning, MotionExperiments and Activities in Elevator and Diagnostic Concept Test in Elevator (DCTE). The obtained datawere interpreted after making reliability & effect size analyses and t-test & one way ANOVA statistics. Learningefficiency of the course was interpreted by calculating according to Hake’s definition of learning gain.Reliability value of data obtained from DCTE is in 0.76; and significant differences were found in control andexperimental groups. It is understood that the method applied to experimental group made significant andpositive contribution to academic achievement of physics courses and learning efficiency in comparison tocontrol group. Depending on study findings, “Using Experimental Video Course Materials in Elevator” canmake positive contributions to secondary education physics curriculum.
