Colleagues:
I need to find out ways to accommodate students who cannot touch or
smell the chemicals traditionally used in Chemistry experiments.  What
approach are other colleges using to provide accommodations in this
situation?  
Is there virtual chemistry software out there appropriate for 100 and
200 level Chemistry courses?  Who makes it?  Which campus departments
were  responsible for evaluating the software?  (Disability Services?
Chemistry? Learning Center?)
I'd appreciate any leads.

Cordially,

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
