Project C-BE and CONDUIT had overlapping research objectives concerning the transferability of computer-related curriculum materials. In this regard, the projects co-sponsored an advertisement placed in the Journal of Chemical Education offering a "Free Demonstration of Computer Based Education in Chemistry." Forty packets were mailed. Of this number, 23 were direct responses to the advertisement, 9 were sent through personal or indirect contact, and 8 were sent as unsolicited information. Results of the project, including usage, reasons for not accessing the programs, user evaluation of the programs, and computer costs are discussed. (Author/EMH)
