Education

Teachers & Professors

One of the most difficult tasks of educators is to transmit the true value of science, so that students can understand its real potential. For this reason, aside from performing theoretical classes in front of a blackboard, more and more teachers tend to bring students to lab practices, so that they can see what real science is about. Now, with the progress and availability of technology, the use of specialized software is gaining more and more popularity, becoming great pedagogical tools.

Undergraduate & Master students

Absolutely all great scientists started by learning the essentials. If you are currently in the middle of your career degree, for sure you must hand in a huge amount of assignments and projects, probably including your final degree/master project. For such tasks, it is hard sometimes to understand the contents and be able to tell if you are moving in the right way. For this reason, specialized software can become a key and decisive tool to successfully accomplish your assignments.

What can you teach/learn with ORCOD LabBook Pro? See some examples

Learn how to work in a systematic way and organize your thoughts.

Explore a wide catalogue of organic chemical reactions: learn the type of transformation that they produce, the functional groups involved and the reaction conditions that they entail.

See, with practical examples, how versatile chemistry is. Use real examples to exhibit the implications that the right reaction conditions have on the outcome.

Start designing your own synthetic strategies and verify their feasibility with the aid of the ORCOD LabBook Pro wizard.

Be conscious of the side processes that some reaction conditions might provoke.

Get used to citing literature articles, writing experimental procedures and other formal issues with the wizards included in the software.

Play with the software by designing different approaches to tackle your project in a few minutes.

Start experimenting with them virtually: explore which reactions can you perform on a particular compound, see how the properties of a compound change if you modify its structure, check which solvents are more advisable, or even simulate how will the TLC of your compounds look like, among many others.

Release and attach your proposals and the results of your project (images or PDF files) as a proof of the aptitudes that you learned.
