Education Research

To increase my quality of teaching and understand the mechanisms of online student learning, Prof. Larsen founded the LibreText project, of which the chemistry library (http://chem.LibreTexts.org) is the most developed constituent library. This project is a collaborative approach toward chemistry education where an Open Access textbook environment is constantly being written and re-written partly by students, partly by faculty and partly by industry experts to result in a free and eventual high-quality chemistry textbook. The LibreTexts approach facilitates learning by engaging students in the content development. The LibreTexts is the most utilized chemistry education resources in the world, with ~4.3 million visitors/ month from across the US and around the world. Last
