Chem Demos - Challenge

To provide UO chemistry instructors with an online tool that allowed them to browse, review and request chemistry lab demonstrations in support of course curriculum.

Chem Demos - Background

Until 2005, UO Chemistry instructors were reviewing and ordering chemistry lab demonstrations using a cumbersome exchange of documents and email requests. Randy Sullivan, lecture demonstrator for the Department of Chemistry, knew there was a better way and approached Interactive Media to create an online tool to address this need.

Chem Demos - Solution

The ChemDemos website addresses the needs of UO chemistry instructors while also providing information to high school chemistry instructors interested in learning about the materials and procedures utilized in university level chemistry lab demonstrations. Using the ChemDemos website, visitors can browse demonstrations by topic, view images, videos and lab descriptions and order custom lab presentations for their courses.
