This website is for the second semester of a three smester course on Organic Chemistry. It contains 10 weeks of three ~45 minute videos and the associated notes. Each video shows the instructor in a small dark window on the left and 2/3 of the screen displays her computer screen which contains a document of her notes that she writes on. The website is very easy to use and contains a document that indexes all topics covered.
