    • Fully Online Organic Chemistry: To Infinity and Beyond
      Phil Janowicz
      University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
      ACS National Meeting
      August 17, 2009
    • HHMI / AAMC 2009 report
      Low levels of science competency and analytical thinking among students entering medical school
      Develop an interdisciplinary competency-based learning approach in the pre-med curriculum
      De-emphasize fact-based learning and rote-memorization
      This change runs parallel to MCAT overhaul
    • Jeff Moore
    • Searchable Hyperlinked Notes
    • Discussion Sessions
    • Exams
      Uses ACE Organic and can deliver structure and mechanism questions
      Can also be combined with Jmol to deliver bioorganic chemistry questions (movie)
    • Online Course - Survey
      23%, no pref
      32%, no
      32%, live
      68%, yes
      45%, online
      Statistically significant difference at 95% confidence level
    • Online Course - Comments
      “I used to think that online courses weren't interactive, but … that was refuted.”
      “This online format was great….  Professor Moore is a very approachable guy.”
      “You can actually learn from online courses.”
    • Online Course - Conclusions
      Students rate the course as at least on par with live course
      Saves instructor time, TA grading hours, room reservations, and money
      Students can learn from wherever they are!
    • Course taught simultaneously at 5 universities around the world to roughly 900 students
      University of Detroit-Mercy
      Peking University
