Landmark Instruments of Chemistry
This website effectively uses animated movies combined with text explanations to describe the processes in FT-IR interferometry, TLC, GC and magnetic sector mass spec. It is effective in illustrating processes that are otherwise difficult to visualize. These materials are excellent visualization tools that can be incorporated into lectures readily.

Myotonic Muscular Dystrophy - Mental Status Exam - Copy Design, Draw Clock Sub-exam - Patient 2
Patient is a 52-year-old African-American male with a known diagnosis of myotonic muscular dystrophy. His neuromuscular symptoms began in the early 1990s with poor dexterity in the hands, dropping objects, and clumsiness with fine motor weakness. He is very slow buttoning clothes, putting on his shoes, brushing his teeth, shaving, and other similar activities. He has trouble in ambulation and falls frequently. He has trouble getting up from a chair or sofa and climbing stairs. He also reports co

More Self Study English
This is a course for Dutch (Bachelor) students who need or want to pay some extra attention to their English language skills. In this course you will find four modules with theory and exercises on Listening, Grammar, Vocabulary and Writing. We will also give you links to useful websites. We strongly recommend that you do not try to do this course in as short a time as possible: learning skills takes time, so you will benefit optimally from the course if you spend weeks, rather than days on it.
