Abstract. We showcase and describe a collection of digital Web-based teaching tools, highly adaptable to diverse teaching needs and styles and designed to foster conceptual understanding of chemistry via interactive visualization. These resources target many of the topics traditionally addressed in the general chemistry curriculum and are widely available to chemistry instructors and students on the Web. We also analyze and discuss the impact that the use of these tools has had on our teaching practices.
