Recent feedback from one of our schools:
"The program was incredibly easy to use and the students found it so refreshing to be able to go at their own speed and do the interactive exercises multiple times if that's what they needed. Some students even did exercises that weren't assigned just to discover more of what was in the program!
It also helped in enthusing them and giving them confidence when we undertook real lab experiments - remember some of these students have never even done any practical chemistry before!!
The experiments provided them with a real challenge and they said to me that they found them much more interesting than anything they'd done before.
Compared with previous years in which I've taught, the grades were significantly better (ca. 8%) with most students achieving C+ or above-I'm really happy with this aspect of the course."
