The importance of chemical experiments and hands-on experience in the study of chemistry is underlined. It is through learning by doing that most students gain experience in this area as elsewhere. However, time does not always permit sufficient laboratory work. Limited financial resources may also restrict access to practical experiments, such as instrumental analysis.
Microcomputer-aided programs can offer a solution to this problem. Our chemical education software was previously developed for the purpose of arrangement and reconfirmation of chemistry knowledge. However, a main target in this paper is also the acquiring of a new knowledge by learners.
This paper describes the educational effect of the microcomputer-aided lecture on the teaching and/or learning of chemistry. The results of this type of lecture concerning instrumental analysis are satisfactory from an educational point of view.
