Chemistry eLearning Course Information

Our aim is to provide a set of online graduate-level courses that make a significant difference in your ability to help your students learn. These courses will be rigorous, but fun! We are continually developing new courses, so check back often!

View a complete list of all e-Learning courses offered. Not all courses are offered every semester. To plan your course of study, download our tentative course offerings for spring 2023 - spring 2026.

Note: Due to the level of work required for these courses, we recommend taking NO MORE THAN two courses in any given semester.

All of these courses require that you are either a certified teacher in your state/country, you are already teaching high school chemistry, or you have taken CHE 301 at Illinois State University.
