Abstract. During the spring semester of 1996, an intercollegiate course entitled "Environmental and Industrial Chemistry" was taken by 107 students at 22 different schools. Each school had its own course instructor who was responsible for scheduling classes, assigning grades, and interacting with students locally. An online component involved interaction between students and between students and the authors of five different papers. Approximately two weeks were devoted to discussion of each paper. Three of the papers were presented by industrial chemists. Two of the papers were student papers selected from a pool of papers prepared by students at the participating schools.
This presentation will provide information about the course and student and instructor evaluations of the course. Also, some course instructors will describe the course offered at their school.
