This symposium seeks presentations from both developers and educators relating to internet-based resources that can be utilized for the teaching and learning of chemistry. We are looking for presentations from the perspectives of both developers and implementers. Resources might involve web-based applications, social and semantic technologies, and other means by which the web is influencing the way scientists and educators communicate information, particularly in the area of chemical education. Papers are invited relating to specific web-based applications, creative solutions to web-based issues in the context of chemical education, reports of the impact of web-based applications on pedagogy and learning, and visions of the future. The overall objective of the symposium is to provide educators and developers the opportunity to learn about cutting-edge technologies and to share their resources and experiences. This symposium is sponsored by the CHED Committee on Computers in Chemical Education.
