    Sir I teach chemistry for 11th and 12th CBSE and ISC boards. I make them subjects visualise and link them with daily activities.

    I want to make videos on each technical term of chemistry with proper meaning and visualisation

    Eg: 1joule I should explain what it mean with respect to work/ heat etc

    Looking for apositive reply


    • K P Madhu says:

      Dear Sujithraj,
      There are two others teaching chemistry that wanted to do similar work. Perhaps we can arrange a workshop specifically for chemistry teachers.Let us discuss the possibility.of a three-week workshop on video production for chemistry teachers. Somebody has to host it and we need to find a funding agency.
