Google Co-op Workshop

Here is the Jan 29, 2007 Google co-op workshop that I ran at Drexel. The first half is an overview of free online educational materials that can be used as resources for teaching. In the second part I demonstrate how these can be used in an organic chemistry class and how to build custom search engines to ensure that students find only material validated by the teacher. In another example I show how a search engine for funding sources could be created.

The examples are available on this wiki and anyone is invited to contribute. Most of the Google co-op links are also open to the public for contributions.

NC Science Blogging Conference

Here is my presentation at the North Carolina Science Blogging conference on Jan 20, 2007. I led a session in the afternoon on Open Source/Open Notebook Science and this is the part before opening up to general discussion. It starts off with an overview of the UsefulChem project in my lab, including our use of JCAMP and JSpecView to provide data mining of our NMR spectra. Other efforts towards doing science openly using blogs and wikis are then highlighted, including:
video Flash format
video iPod format (m4v)
Powerpoint slides
