In the last three years I have consistently used web-based technology in the instruction of chemistry and physical science classes. Web applications in my teaching range from distribution of syllabi and class announcements to delivery of electronic lab quizzes for both on-campus and distance classes. I have also developed a web-based tutorial on Molecular Models available at http://www.eou.edu/chemweb/molmodel/mmp1.html This tutorial is currently used in the instruction of 100 and 200 level general chemistry courses. More recently I have been part of the "Collaboratory Project" which allows our students to remotely interact with scientists at Battelle Pacific Northwest National Laboratories (PNNL) in Richland, WA. Because Eastern is a small undergraduate institution with limited resources, the "Collaboratory" tools provide interaction with remote instruments and software, and access to remote data and visualizations that otherwise would not be available. In addition to the already mentioned tools, the "Collaboratory" offers an "electronic notebook" which students at Eastern use for Instrumental Analysis reports. The electronic notebook has been a successful tool to mentor at a distance Eastern students conducting summer research at PNNL.
