Instructional videos have been prepared using Adobe Captivate software to create animated tutorials to capture instrument and molecular modeling software simulations and to allow for increased independent hands-on instrument use by students and faster training for instructors and teaching assistants. The videos are available on YouTube and can be viewed prior to or synchronously as students are acquiring an IR spectrum, processing an [superscript 1]H NMR spectrum, or performing specific calculations using GaussView. Student surveys indicate preference for the animated tutorials over conventional paper instructions and general favorability of the videos.
