The Chemistry Hypermedia Project at Virginia Tech

The Project

The Chemistry Hypermedia Project is exploring new ways to apply computer and network technology to help students learn chemistry, and to help educators teach chemistry.

The specific goals of this project are:

  1. To use the internet to provide supplemental educational resources to chemistry students.
  2. To determine effective hypermedia designs for chemical education.
  3. To evaluate the distribution of multimedia educational material over the internet.
  4. To develop, evaluate, and dessiminate prototype programs for creating interactive exercises.

History of the Chemistry Hypermedia Project

Professor Brian Tissue began the Chemistry Hypermedia Project at Virginia Tech in October 1993. The Chemistry Department HTTP server went online in March 1994 with a Mac IIcx convertible. (Who says Macs aren't expandable?)
