This online course comes from the Open Learning Initiative (OLI) by Carnegie Mellon. “The course includes self-guiding materials and activities, and is ideal for independent learners, or instructors trying out this course package.”
"This online course is based on the 2005 version of Modern Chemistry II (course number 09-106) taught at Carnegie Mellon University. The course is broken up by topic into units and modules. The following are some key features of the classroom experience and how they are translated into this online course.
Lesson Notes Students were given handouts containing problem statement, drawings and other items along with large blank areas for the instructor and students to fill in during the lecture. The "Lesson Notes" module at the beginning of each unit contains these handouts both in their original form and the annotated versions in which the instructor has filled in the blank portions. To fully emulate the classroom experience, you should download and print the original versions and fill them in as you watch the classroom lecture. Alternatively, you may download the annotated versions and add your own comments to those of the instructor.
Did I get this? At a few points during an hour long lecture, the instructor stopped to ask the classroom to vote on the answer to a conceptual question. This allows students to reflect on and practice the topics covered during the lecture. In this online course, these questions appear as links labeled "Did I get this?". Selecting this link will pop up a window that will allow you to answer the question on your own. Following this, you can watch the classroom discussion of the question's correct answer.
Virtual labs Students in the class were given weekly homework assignments, many of which involved designing and carrying out experiments in a chemistry virtual lab. These assignments are interspersed throughout this online course.
Textbook Readings and Suggested Problems Students in the class were given suggested readings and practice problems from the course textbook to accompany each section. In this online course, readings will be drawn from an online chemistry textbook provided by the Journal of Chemical Education. http://wiki.chemeddl.org/index.php/Collections:Texts:Chemistry."
