Este tutorial incluye animaciones en temas relevantes de química y permite visualizar de manera didáctica conceptos que necesitan de gran imaginación visual. Destaco, por ejemplo las leyes de los gases y permite modificar las variables y visualizar el efecto que ellas tienen sobre el sistema. También destaco el concepto de hibridación en el cuál se muestra como cambia la forma de los orbitales en las diferentes formas de hibridación.

El menú principal permite navegar fácilmente por los diferentes temas y elegir la animación de interés. En forma automática se instala el programa para ejecutar la animación lo que facilita su uso en todos los equipos conectados a la red.

La información entregada es útil,  se puede complementar en algunos casos como por ejemplo en la animación de hibridación sólo se presentan los orbitales sigma sería útil complementarla con los orbitales pi.

The applets on heating and cooling/phase diagrams were fantastic. Will definitely use in future classes.

This is an outstanding example of what multimedia learning is. He has about seventy-five structures to make any high school Chemistry class dramatically colorful.
