From the University of Ottawa comes OrgChem101, "a set of organic chemistry learning modules that provide structured guidance as you (the student) explore organic chemistry concepts." This resource features three interactive modules: organic chemistry nomenclature, organic reaction mechanisms, and organic acid-base reactions. Each module provides "interactive instructional videos, animations, and interactive activities that promote the mastery of concepts, provide feedback, and link to real-world contexts." Appropriate for use as a supplement to traditional classroom learning or for blended, flipped, or online learning, these modules are designed so that they can stand alone or be completed as a series. OrgChem101 bases its modules on the theory of metacognition, which it defines as "awareness of your knowledge (or lack thereof) and ... the strategies you use to plan and monitor understanding and performance." This valuable study and teaching resource can be accessed with registration for a free account and is available in both English and French. OrgChem101 was created by Alison B. Flynn, an Associate Professor of Chemistry at the University of Ottawa whose research focuses on post-secondary chemistry and science education.
