    Research Interests

    My research in chemical and distance education includes online chemistry courses and concentrates on the use of innovative distance delivery methods for undergraduate laboratory work. This has included developing home-study lab kits, remote-controlled laboratories, learner self-diagnostic, and more recently replacing the commercial textbook in organic chemistry with a wiki. I publish in several other areas on topics including learning design, learning outcomes, assessment, PLAR, transfer credit, distance and online education, and emerging educational technologies.
