CHEM 106 lectures were delivered live to a summer 2013 class at Nicholls.  The lectures are mainly based on the e-textbook by Lo and Janusa, CHEMISTRY: THE CORE CONCEPTS 2nd Edition.  The book (LJ) is not available in hardcopy format and is only available through Barnes and Noble’s free NookStudy ebook reader for Windows and Mac computers.

  1. Dear experts,
    we have Moodle 3.1, and I am looking for a viable way to write organic chemistry formulas by Atto editor for/in Quiz question.
    As I checked available Chemistry plugins, MarvinJS is commercial, and easychem plugins are for older Moodle 2.7 and lower.
    Has someone achieved typing organic chemistry formulas in Moodle 3.x ?

    Any help is appreciated.
