ChemThink Server Status

Great news for ChemThink users – the ChemThink server is up and running! It took a lot of long nights over the summer, and a complete rewrite of all of the software, but it is finally working again. The server is only available for the two new HTML5 tutorials – the old Flash-based tutorials are incompatible with the new technology. We will work on porting over the remaining tutorials as time permits.

To access the new server-based tutorials, go to either of the following:

Atomic Structure Tutorial

Particulate Nature of Matter Tutorial

You will have the option to create either a teacher account or a student account.  We recommend that every teacher create a mock student account to see the new system from their students’ perspective.

You should have the following capabilities:

As a student:
  1. create an account
  2. log in / log out
  3. reset a forgotten password
  4. do tutorials and question sets (just “Atomic Structure” and “The Particulate Nature of Matter” so far)
  5. see when assignments are due
  6. modify your own student information and join a class – It is also possible to create a student account that is not part of a class, and then join later.
As a teacher:
  1. create an account
  2. log in / log out
  3. reset a forgotten password
  4. create a class
  5. manage the students in a class, including resetting their password
  6. modify your own teacher account information
  7. set due dates for assignments***
  8. track student progress on assignments

A big thank-you to all of the teachers who have donated money for the new server, shared their ChemThink worksheets, helped with testing, and provided moral support and encouragement along the way.
