Abstract. The Physical Chemistry OnLine Consortium (PCOL) is dedicated to enhancing undergraduate physical chemistry by encouraging faculty and challenging students to conduct short-term (~4 weeks) Web-based, mathematically sophisticated activities. PCOL projects involve students and faculty at geographically dispersed institutions. In the fall of 2000, PCOL sponsored three very different projects involving faculty and 175 students from 16 different institutions. This paper discusses strategies for dealing with the growing pains that our successful Web-based educational endeavor has encountered.
