General chemistry courses often taught at the high school and introductory university level and are intended to serve as a broad introduction to a variety of concepts in chemistry. This is a collection of textbooks and textmaps designed to address General chemistry course formulated with different organizations and levels. Individual CC licenses are applied to each resource.
Open Chemistry (OpenChem) provides a full curriculum of recorded lectures covering undergraduate chemistry plus selected graduate topics. Through lecture videos and ancillary materials, anyone in the world can effectively sit alongside UCI Irvine students and view complete undergraduate core and elective course lectures delivered by top faculty members. UCI's goal is to provide resources not only for learners, but for instructors, as well. Any of our OpenChem materials are immediately available for use by institutions or individual professors teaching their own courses.
The Chemistry I course digital enhancements collection provides open education resources (OER) for instructors covering chemical concepts in the first semester of a general chemistry course or other STEM-related courses that cover some aspect of first semester chemistry topics within their curriculum. The “Chemistry: Atoms First, 2e” is the primary OER textbook used by the UNC Digital Course Enhancement for Chemistry I faculty team members. The course material provided is related to general chemistry concepts that students on a career tract, such as a professional career in chemistry, a related science, the health professions, or engineering are required to learn.
General Chemistry I course collection materials include suggested reading sections in the Chemistry: Atoms First, 2e textbook, lecture videos and activities/assessments related to chemical concepts such as, but not limited to the following: relevant chemistry historical events, basic principles and definitions, states of matter, dimensional analysis, the mole, atomic structure, the periodic table, periodic relationships, chemical bonding and geometry, enthalpy, stoichiometry, and types of chemical reactions.
Chemistry 1 course collection video from the UNC System OER project. This one-minute video is meant for students. It focuses on what students may think they know about the topic, what students could learn from taking the course, and a brief introduction to open educational resources.
This open-access online general chemistry video repository, offered not-for-credit and free of charge from UC Berkeley, provides students an introduction to the world of chemistry as seen from a broad variety of perspectives.
