Livescribe Chemistry Pencasts by Dr. Bob Belford

Dr. Bob Belford has created many pencasts for chemistry to support his Preparatory Chemistry (Chemistry 1300) course at UALR (University of Arkansas at Little Rock).*

These pencasts complement lecture outlines and interactive quizzes which Dr. Belford “hopes to move to a dynamic site in the near future”. Altogether the pencasts, outlines, and quizzes make for an extraordinary set of resources for beginning chemistry students.

Dr. Belford makes an important note about how pencasts sometimes replay: “Please note that the [Livescribe] pen capture software has some flaws and some of the penstrokes are not presented as they were performed. Like when I cancelled out a unit, it is now showing that occuring as I write the unit, not afterwards. You need to follow the logic of the audio file.” I (Tim Fahlberg) have also noticed this in a few of my pencasts and will share this feedback and hope for a fix from the Livescribe software development team.

Dr. Belford’s pencasts are here: chem1300 and include:

1.C Pencasts These are experimental pencasts using a livescribe pulse pen. This material is under development and I am not happy with the way they are currently posted. Be sure to turn your speakers on. Read more… Livescribe Chemistry Pencasts by Dr. Bob Belford
