One challenge facing science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) is the difficulty in adequately presenting increasingly content rich coursework while providing enough examples and alternate illustrations of concepts to meet the learning needs of students. To address both of these issues, a number of short multimedia mini-lectures will be developed that take advantage of pencasts, webcast, screen capture, and multimedia presentation (such as video or annotated powerpoint slides) that will be used to present examples and concepts.  These short ( <15min ) ‘lecture snippets’ will initially focus on basic skills that are required across a number of STEM classes (general chemistry, algebra, and physics).

Each content module should contain the following:

the lecturette

homework selections based on the demonstration

an assessment piece that can be used for self-assessment and /or performance

selected in-class test questions to gauge student performance.
