Say Hello to the

AktivGrid

An entirely new, patent-pending organic molecule drawing experience with chemical intelligence to help students quickly learn from their mistakes.

MOBILE-FIRST

Designed for use on any student smartphone and to scale up for larger devices like tablets and laptops.

COMPREHENSIVE

Draw and manipulate cyclic and acyclic compounds as well as chair, Newman, and Fischer projections.

INTUITIVE

AktivGrid’s smart and dynamic interface allows students to focus on chemistry and not technology.

ARROW DRAWING

Mechanisms & Resonance

In addition to drawing structures, the AktivGrid supports a wide array of activities to help students learn and master electron pushing in Organic Chemistry.

Students benefit from a research-based stepping stone approach that helps students build a conceptual understanding and allows them to draw mechanisms.

Chiral Center

You have incorrectly assigned the configuration. Evaluate the 4 atoms directly attached to the stereocenter using the Cahn-Ingold-Prelog (CIP) rules to determine the configuration of the stereocenter and try again.

Chain Length

The total number of carbons in the parent chain of your product is incorrect. Consider how the the presence of the nitrile group in reaction step 1 modifies to the original parent carbon chain.

Functional Group

Remember, oxidation reagents have differing oxidizing ability and can typically be considered “weak” or “strong”. Reconsider the oxidation state of your product under these reaction conditions.

FEEDBACK WITH

Chemical Intelligence

Automatic student feedback recognizes student drawing mistakes to help them learn in the moment.

Structure

Find mistakes in carbon chain lengths, missing or incorrect functional groups, and regiochemistry.

CONFORMATION

Find mistakes for R/S, E/Z, cis/trans, and cylcohexane chair conformations.

SYNTHESIS

Grading and feedback on each synthesis step as well as reagents, major/minor products, and more.

Smart Suggestion

Organic Nomenclature

Help students master both IUPAC and common naming of every functional group in Organic Chemistry.

Assign nomenclature problems outside of class to save more class time for higher order topics like synthesis and mechanisms.

Multiple Devices

Use Any Device

Bring your own device. Any device. Students and instructors can access the Aktiv Learning app from any iPhone, iPad, or Android Device. Additionally, the platform is fully accessible on Web with any Mac, PC, or Chromebook.

Aktiv Chemistry’s mobile-first design ensures that students receive the same experience no matter where they are. Students take advantage of the Aktiv Learning mobile app to work and study on-the-go in places like riding the bus or train, or even on campus when they have downtime.

Gradebook & LMS Integration

Aktiv Chemistry’s gradebook can be synced with any popular campus LMS such as Canvas, Blackboard, Moodle, or D2L. The gradebook and associated columns can be customized to separate the various assignment types, to present individual assignments, or display summary columns for each type.

Every Aktiv Chemistry activity has a multitude of grading policies that can be customized depending on the assignment type. Settings include points per problem, participation credit, late submissions with penalties, variable attempts per problem, penalties for incorrect attempts, and more.

Algorithmic Problems & Question Pools

Aktiv Chemistry offers additional security with both Question Pools and Algorithmic Problems. These features randomize the content that is delivered to each student during homeworks, quizzes, or exams. Instructors can also randomize the order of questions on any assignment.

With Algorithmic Problems, built-in variables create thousands of question variants to be delivered that randomize numbers, words, or compounds within the problem statement. With Question Pools, instructors can group together a set of similar questions and deliver a subset of them at random to students.

Attendance

Aktiv Chemistry’s attendance tool allows instructors to easily take student attendance by randomizing a check in code for each class or lecture. Customize timing to have a strict or lenient lateness policy.

Question Authoring

Aktiv Chemistry’s authoring tool allows instructors to easily write, save, and assign your own questions with targeted instructional feedback. Input superscripts, subscripts, and special symbols with a breeze.
