Chemistry Blog » Blog Archive » Organic Chemistry Reactions Mind Map Well… this oughta cover it. I was reading comments to my reddit submission of the many oxidation states of carbon, and Aa1979 asked if the functional groups could be arranged logically according to actual chemical transformations. I replied that would be too reaction dependent… alcohols can be turned into a great many things (chlorides, alkenes, ketones, acids, aldehydes…), then aldehydes themselves could be turned into a great many things (alcohols, alkenes, acids, imine/enamine, acetal…). Feeling crazy, and deciding to put of lab work I should be doinghaving nothing to do, I expanded on James’ mind map and tried to get as many reactions as I could on one map. These are just about all the reactions you’d encounter in your standard, two semester undergraduate organic chemistry course.

Mobile Curriculum on an iPhone with iTunes U Have you experimented with building a course yet with the new iTunes U Course Manager? The creation of Apple's web based course manager for the iOS iTunes U app is one of those big deals in education that somehow has flown pretty much under the radar. This is unusual for Apple, where customarily every utterance or new product is met with cult like adoration. An underplayed Apple story? Can't be. But with iTunes U and Course Manager we seem to have an underexposed Apple product. And the biggest deal may be that iTunes U finally delivers a platform that allows us to put our course curriculum in our pocket (as long at that pocket contains an iPhone). The iTunes U app (only available on iOS devices) works with Apple's web based Course Manager portal to allow faculty and learning designers to easily create "courses" that contain documents and media files. We have been experimenting in putting up video files from our lecture capture system (Echo360), and the playback works great.

Beyond PowerPoint: 10 Other Presentation Tools for Small Businesses When someone says "presentation tools," what's the first thing that comes to mind? For most people, it's likely Microsoft's PowerPoint. Although PowerPoint is worthy presentation software, the world of presentation-making is a vast one that extends beyond the creation of slides.

Slidebean Launches To Give Prezi A Run For Its Money If you’re looking for an easier way to turn the content in your head into a beautiful presentation, Slidebean has launched to give users presentation tools right on the web. Of course, such tools have been around for years and years, but Slidebean is different in that it’s one of the only presentation builders that separates the content from the format. Here’s how it works: Once you’ve signed up, you’re asked to simply input content slide-by-slide. At the bottom of the page, there are a handful of slide types, like Title Only, Bullet Points, Imagery, Video, or just Text. When you add an image, you are not only offered a way to upload from URL and from the computer, but you also have your own little search window inside the web app itself to find good imagery for your presentation. After inputting all the content you’re using, you can click into the Design tab and start making changes to the format and color palette.

This is the first example from the fall 2010 classes. You can search on this blog for “Luther College” to find over 25 other examples from last school years’ students. Again Dr. Their assignment was to create an idea map that would be relevant to them either personally, professionally, or academically. Above you will find Idea Map #262. “When I made this idea map, we had just started some basic chemistry guidelines that I was having trouble memorizing and keeping straight.

Concept Mapping « PreviousHomeNext » Social scientists have developed a number of methods and processes that might be useful in helping you to formulate a research project. I would include among these at least the following -- brainstorming, brainwriting, nominal group techniques, focus groups, affinity mapping, Delphi techniques, facet theory, and qualitative text analysis. Here, I'll show you a method that I have developed, called concept mapping, which is especially useful for research problem formulation. Concept mapping is a general method that can be used to help any individual or group to describe their ideas about some topic in a pictorial form. Although concept mapping is a general method, it is particularly useful for helping social researchers and research teams develop and detail ideas for research. So what is concept mapping? A concept mapping process involves six steps that can take place in a single day or can be spread out over weeks or months depending on the situation.

How to create a professional Presentation online in under 5 minutes Creating a Presentation doesn’t have to be hard or frustrating. It shouldn’t require different software and should be a quick and seamless process. That’s a challenge we often faced at our Web consulting firm HindSite Interactive. That’s why we decided to take things into our own hands and create Visme (formerly called EWC Presenter). Is it really that easy and should I really adopt this over the many other Presentation Apps? Let’s take a closer look: Prezi: Great at what it does but it allows one format of non linear transition. PowerPoint and Keynote: Around for number of years both are good software but traditionally based on old method of downloading software locally and accessible to edit from computers that have the software installed. Google Presentations: Part of the Google Docs cloud based tools, Presentations by Google Docs are also linear (slides) and allow one to create simple slide decks. The list can go on as there are many others tools. So here goes. Add a Slide Last step.
