The University of Colorado Boulder, with support from the National Science Foundation, has compiled this helpful collection of resources for teaching and learning chemical engineering. Created by CU faculty, these resources are organized into four categories: Screencasts, Interactive Simulations, Student Resources, and Instructor Resources. In Screencasts, visitors will find a series of short YouTube videos addressing topics that range from Fluid Mechanics to Process Control to Thermodynamics. These short videos could be used to enhance classroom instruction, or to provide a helpful study tool for students to use outside of the classroom. Meanwhile, the Interactive Simulations section features a variety of tools and demonstrations that aim to help students better understand concepts such as heat transfer and the impact of windchill on skin temperatures. (Note: these interactives require users to use Wolfram Demonstrations based browser plug-ins or to download the Wolfram CDF player). Instructors will find assessments and a course packet for teaching Thermodynamics in the Instructor Resources section, while students can access a number of study aides, along with general advice about studying, in Student Resources.
