ChemEd DL [Flash Player, pdf]
The Chemistry Educational Digital Library (ChemEd DL) was created to serve as a "destination for digital content intended for chemical science education." The partners responsible for this digital portal include the National Science Digital Library (NSDL), the Journal of Chemical Education, and The Chemistry Collective. The homepage has sections that are titled with playful directives: "Observe!", "Explore!", and "Explain!" Each of these sections contains helpful images and videos that can be used as stand-alone interactive activities, or they can be incorporated into a classroom setting. At the top of the homepage, visitor can use the "Collections" area to make their way through data-driven exercises, digital demonstrations, and "living textbooks". Additionally, the "Communities" area features smaller discrete communities that deal with the teaching of physical chemistry, organic chemistry, and general chemistry.
