Abstract

The educational use of an interactive tutorial illustrating and exploring core chemistry- biochemistry concepts in depth was evaluated with first year university students. The investigation tools were constructed by a multidisciplinary staff and included knowledge evaluation, student appreciation and silent observations of the students. The results show that the tutorial was appreciated by the students and that they were able to work at their own rhythm. We measured the learning outcomes resulting from the use of the tutorial and observed that the students’ knowledge on the topics covered was significantly improved. The behaviour of the students using this tutorial and some unexpected answers led us to propose a new version of the tutorial and a utilization procedure better adapted to the students’ skills as well as other possible uses are proposed.
