I had the privilege of co-chairing a session on Mobile Chemistry today with Harry Pence. The session was “Mobile devices, augmented reality, and the mobile classroom”
Putting chemistry into the hands of students – chemistry made mobile using resources from the Royal Society of Chemistry
The increasing prevalence of mobile devices offers the opportunity to provide chemistry students with easy access to a multitude of resources. As a publisher the RSC provides a myriad of content to chemists including an online database of over 26 million chemical compounds, tools for learning spectroscopy and access to scientific literature and other educational materials. This presentation will provide an overview of our efforts to make RSC content more mobile, and therefore increasingly available to chemists. In particular it will discuss our efforts to provide access to chemistry related data of high value to students in the laboratory. It will include an overview of spectroscopy tools for the review and analysis of various forms of spectroscopy data.
