The availability of computers, the emergence of new visualisation and authoring tools and techniques, together with the expansion of web based learning environments and CD-based multimedia applications, offer chemistry teachers new possibilities for bridging the gap in students' knowledge and understanding of abstract and concrete chemical concepts and processes. This paper shows by example how the advantages of both the Internet and the interactive CD-ROMs can be used to improve students' learning at both macro- and microscopic level. We present results of a study of the effects of interactive multimedia teaching units on the quality of knowledge.
