Abstract

This work is concerning an innovative project for teaching inorganic and structural chemistry at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. The key concepts are the exploitation of new web media in chemistry education, and the usability of chemical research tools. The use of new techniques, such as video streaming or stereo VRML, can highly enhance the student's perception and participation. Firstly, the benefits of these new tools will be discussed, considering both aspects of student daily work, and the use of scientific visualization to tackle complex tasks in an accessible manner. Secondarily, a guideline for the development of tools and contents will be presented. The guideline considers the crucial problem of giving to researchers the tools to develop, on their own, high quality chemical materials for the web.
