ChemSpider is an online database of chemical compounds, reaction syntheses and analytical data. Provided by the Royal Society of Chemistry, our intention is to provide a free internet resource of chemistry related data for the community. ChemSpider is unique in its role of allowing user depositions of chemical structures, synthesis procedures and analytical data and, in so doing, provides an environment for crowdsourced gathering of information. To date over 2000 1D and 2D NMR spectra have been deposited online by the community and are available for reuse. The data have been used as the basis of a spectral game whereby students can learn NMR by interacting with the data. This presentation will provide an overview of the tools and capabilities presently available on ChemSpider to support teaching NMR in the undergraduate curriculum and will outline how the community can participate in enriching this resource for the benefit of all.
