Chemistry for the way students learn

Interactive General Chemistry delivers the learning experience students need to succeed in general

Built from the ground up as a digital learning program, Interactive General Chemistry combines the Sapling Learning homework platform with a robust e-book with seamlessly embedded, multimedia-rich learning resources. This flexible learning environment helps students effectively and efficiently tackle chemistry concepts and problem solving.

Chapters follow the traditional sequence of an introductory chemistry course but can be adapted to suit an Atoms First organisation. To view the contents page click here.

Student-Centred Development

In addition to our rigorous academic peer review process, we made the student experience central to the development of Interactive General Chemistry. The goal was to create a learning environment that reflects the way students truly study. During the development process, we focused on creating and curating resources and tools that students said they were most likely to use and that contributed to their understanding of chemistry concepts.

Student interviews

Interviews enabled us to ask students specific questions about how they approach studying for their general chemistry course

Student workshops

Workshops gave us the opportunity to work with students firsthand, and understand their study

A Digital-First Experience

Interactive General Chemistry was built from the ground up to take full advantage of the digital learning environment. High-quality multimedia resources—including Sapling interactives, simulations, and exclusive new whiteboard videos by Tyler DeWitt—are seamlessly integrated into a streamlined, uncluttered e-book. Embedded links provide easy and efficient navigation, enabling students to link to review material and definitions as needed.

Inside iOLab
Embedded Interactive Simulations - created by Sapling provide students with a way to interact with the material, promoting the idea of learning by doing. Embedded videos and simulations help visual learners.

Animations and Videos - help students visualise the molecular world, illustrate difficult concepts, and present live representations of lab activities.

Video Examples - from master teacher and popular YouTube video author Tyler DeWitt make chemistry concepts clear and understandable through the effective use of whiteboard videos. At least one whiteboard video is included in each section.

Problems Drive Purposeful Study

Homework problems serve as a front door to a true student learning experience. Students can either answer a question immediately or study further before answering.

The new Resources tab directs students to material in the multimedia-rich e-book that will help them solve the problem. Each problem also offers Sapling's hallmark hints, targeted feedback, and detailed solutions.

'I am a visual learner, so the fact that I could interact with the figures, animations, videos, and interactives, helps me to better understand the content.' Cristina Throckmorton, Western Kentucky University
