New JSMol Question Type

I recently updated the OpenOChem code to include a new question type called the JSmol question type.  This question type requires students to construct a 3D structures using the JSMol Model kit.  There are two options for checking correctness of students responses; Structure (Smiles) and Conformer (RMSD). With the Structure (Smiles) option selected the students […]

Mechanism Matching

I wanted to briefly document how I implemented mechanism matching in OpenOChem. When you draw a reaction mechanism or structure in ChemDoodle, using the API you have the option of exporting the structure(s) as MOLfile format or Chemdoodles JSON format.  I utilize both of these.  The Molfile only describes the molecular structures, while the JSON […]
