Wiley Enhances Chemistry Learning with Alchemie Partnership

Wiley, a global leader in research and learning, has partnered with Alchemie, a digital learning tools creator, to integrate visual interactive elements into Wiley's Knewton Alta courseware. The partnership aims to improve learning outcomes for college chemistry students by incorporating Alchemie's interactive learning tools into the Knewton Alta Principles of General Chemistry course.

Why this matters: This partnership has the potential to revolutionize the way students learn complex scientific concepts, leading to improved academic performance and increased interest in STEM fields. Moreover, the integration of accessible tools for visually impaired students sets a new standard for inclusivity in education.

The courseware covers topics such as atoms, molecules and ions, substances and solutions, kinetics, and electrochemistry. "There's great alignment with Alchemie's learning tools and the Knewton Alta platform - both are driven by building pathways for understanding by following specific learning objectives," said Julia Winter, CEO and founder of Alchemie.

Alchemie's digital interactive learning tools are designed to increase student success in STEM courses by focusing on hands-on exploratory learning, providing immediate feedback and real-time assessment. The tools help students better visualize complex scientific concepts and deliver immediate feedback on their progress, leading to deeper connections and long-lasting learning.

"We are excited about this new partnership with Alchemie and the ways it will enhance our introductory chemistry course and potentially beyond," said Lyssa Vanderbeek, Wiley group vice president for Courseware. The visual interactives will be seamlessly integrated into the Alta chemistry course starting in the fall. The partnership will also expand to additional Wiley products in the future.

Importantly, Alchemie's tools are accessible to all students, including those who are blind or have low vision. This ensures the enhanced learning experience is inclusive and available to the full spectrum of learners.

The Wiley and Alchemie partnership represents a significant step forward in integrating cutting-edge interactive learning into mainstream college courseware. By visualizing complex concepts and providing real-time feedback, the Knewton Alta chemistry course aims to boost student engagement, comprehension and success in a challenging STEM subject. The fall launch in Hoboken, NJ marks the beginning of this innovative approach that holds promise to expand to other courses and locations, revolutionizing the way students learn chemistry and beyond.
