A Complete Learning Platform Specifically Designed for Chemistry Education

Whether you’re looking to quickly assign online homework, build your own custom interactive lessons, or quickly set up a comprehensive introductory chemistry course, do it all with a feature and content-rich learning platform that can support chemistry learning both inside and outside the classroom.

Key2CHEM Features

Easily Assign Problem Sets with Instant Grading

Rather than having to wait for homework to be graded and returned, Key2CHEM problem sets provide instant feedback.

Question Specific Hints for Struggling Students

If a student finds themselves struggling with how to solve a problem, Key2CHEM offers help in the form of question specific hints. These hints break the problem down step-by-step to help students understand how to complete that specific problem.

Low Cost

We strongly believe that the best learning resources shouldn't be cost-prohibitive. To help make education more accessible to all, Key2CHEM has kept its pricing low. K-12 students pay a low $11.95 per year and college students pay only $39.95 per semester.

Build Interactive Lessons

Gone are the days where students grab a large textbook and start reading. With Key2CHEM, our lessons feature allows you to assign interactive lessons that intermix instructional components with assessment items to give your students instant feedback on their learning.

Repository of Sharable Learning Resources

Sharing is caring. At Key2CHEM, 100% of all resources can be shared or copied. Looking to create resources and share them with other colleagues? No problem. Are you interested in using resources created by others? No problem.

Flexibility to Modify Learning Resources

Easily add, delete, modify, or re-order any learning resources to meet the needs of your classes. If you are looking to create your own resources, Key2CHEM will allow you to build your own learning lessons or questions, or even upload your own YouTube videos for students to watch remotely.

Ability to Easily Integrate Open Educational Resources

In an effort to fully leverage existing OER resources, in addition to Key2CHEM specific resources, Key2CHEM houses a repository of easily assignable learning and assessment resources from OER textbooks such as Openstax and OpenIntro, among others.

Real-Time Learning Charts

Teachers can access student learning in real-time with charts that update every 10 seconds. The charts afford easier understanding of learning at the classroom level, or by student or problem.

Message board

In an effort to foster collaboration among our community of educators, Key2CHEM offers a community message board. This message board serves as a tool which helps facilitate community and the sharing of ideas and resources among chemistry educators worldwide.

The Key2CHEM Introductory Chemistry Course.

Our Key2CHEM course covers all of the material typically found in a two-semester general chemistry course. The course provides everything a chemistry educator needs to get his or her classes up and running quickly. Each course comes with all the learning materials and assessment items for both asynchronous and synchronous learning; all at an affordable cost for students. Each course comes with a curated collection of lessons, problem sets, and real-time reports and graphics to assess student learning. Finally, should there be something about the course you wish to change, the whole course is completely customizable to meet the needs of your students.

Additional Platform Features

Math Review

Often, students who enroll in chemistry classes would benefit from a little math review. If you have students who fall into this category, feel free to use our collection of math review assignments to get all students off on the right foot.

Mastery Learning Assignments

This feature allows you to assign a large problem set, and students continue to work on problems until a predefined average has been met (and at least 8 problems have been completed).

Differentiated Instruction

Teachers can create a primary problem set to be completed by all students. Then, depending on the final grade of the primary problem set, a secondary problem set is then assigned. This allows teachers to adjust instruction to meet the needs of different students.

Free-Response Quick Grading Feature

While the vast majority of assigned questions are graded automatically, free-response questions must be automatically graded. To help educators with this task, our platform has developed a free-response quick grading feature to help educators grade more efficiently using stored feedback with corresponding grades.

Organize Your Resources

If you are the type of educator who likes to stay organized, Key2CHEM has you covered. Bundle problem sets and lessons as modules, and then bundle the modules into a complete course. If you like Key2CHEM’s pre-built course, just make a copy and store it as your own.

Schedule Due Dates

When assigning problem sets, set due dates so that students know exactly when each assignment is due. In addition, Key2CHEM will track which assignments have been submitted late.

Assignment Reports

Each assignment has a plethora of reports and graphics. Our analysis tools will help you understand how individual students performed, how students, on average, did on specific questions, and even see how students are doing in real-time.
