Mastering Spectroscopy - University of Alberta

A mobile and interactive learning application to assist students in the learning of organic spectroscopy.


Onlea works with clients on specific apps to provide opportunities for students to practice challenging concepts and gain subject mastery. We partnered with the University of Alberta to develop an interactive tutorial to assist students in learning organic spectroscopy. The experience complements the introductory course offered to 3,000 students every year.


Modern Web Technologies

The mobile experience can be accessed on all platforms and devices, including desktop, android, and iOS.

Smooth User Experience

Onlea incorporated feedback from students and instructors to create a smooth and intuitive user experience. Users authenticate through their Google account and can save their progress to resume at any point.

Students test their knowledge and reward progress by unlocking new examples as they progress. Pattern recognition is an important factor in organic spectroscopy, and students can practice combining identified functional groups to build the correct compound. Completed compounds show students the assembled compound, test results, and unlock a fact about the compound.


In Mastering Spectroscopy, learners practice organic chemistry by analyzing infrared (IR), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), and mass spectrum data for various organic samples. They can identify functional groups and proton types in the graphs and build the compound based on their findings.

Award winning online learning interactive, best in formal learning.
