Computer Based Techniques Applied to Undergraduate Chemistry.
Castleberry, Sam J.; Lagowski, J. J.
Realizing that each student has his own optimal learning environment and that the computer is a valuable tool in individualizing instruction, instructors at the University of Texas at Austin designed a chemistry course using the latest computer technology to assist the instructor and to maximize student achievement. The course consisted of lectures, textbook activities, and exams; for those students that showed weaknesses on the exams, remedial computer modules were available. The course was offered twice and results showed a positive effect on both student achievement and student attitudes. A list of computer modules, sample student-computer interactions, grade distribution data, and cost information are included. (EMH)
