My first talk of three on August 11th 2014 at the ACS San Francisco meeting
Teaching analytical spectroscopy using online spectroscopic data
The teaching of spectroscopy can be a complex and challenging task. The Royal Society of Chemistry has been developing online resources for a number of years that provide access to analytical data as well as interactive quizzes and challenge sets. The RSC data repository houses over 250,000 spectra at this time including mass spectrometry, NMR and IR data and these are utilized to provide online games to test students capabilities, to underpin the SpectraSchool training website and to produce source data for students and teachers alike to use in their teaching and self-training efforts. This presentation will provide an overview of RSC resources that can be used to teach spectroscopy using our online data and tools.
