Susan Young received her B.S. in Chemistry in 1988 from the University of Dayton and her Ph.D. in Inorganic Chemistry in 1994 from the University of Colorado at Boulder under the direction of Dr. Arlan Norman, where she worked on the reactivity of cavity-containing phosphazanes. She did postdoctoral work with Dr. John Kotz at the State University of New York at Oneonta, teaching and working on projects in support of the development of the first General Chemistry CD-ROM. She taught at Roanoke College in Virginia, then joined the faculty at Hartwick College in 1996, where she is now Professor of Chemistry. Susan maintains an active undergraduate research program at Hartwick, and has worked on a number of chemistry textbook projects, including co-authoring an Introduction to General, Organic, and Biochemistry Interactive CD-ROM with Bill Vining. Bill Vining graduated from SUNY Oneonta in 1981 and earned his Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry at UNC-Chapel Hill in 1985, working on the modification of electrode surfaces with polymer-bound redox catalysts. After three years working in industry for S.C. Johnson and Son (Johnson Wax) in Racine, Wisconsin, he became an assistant professor of inorganic chemistry at Hartwick College and eventually Department Chair. It was here that Bill started working on educational software, first creating the set of simulations called Chemland. This led to work with Dr. John Kotz on the first General Chemistry CD-ROM, and a distance learning course produced with Archipelago Productions. This work led to a move to the University of Massachusetts where he served as Director of General Chemistry, which serves 1,400 students every semester. He was awarded the University of Massachusetts Distinguished Teaching Award in 1999 and the UMass College of Natural Sciences Outstanding Teacher Award in 2003. At UMass, he also ran a research group dedicated to developing interactive educational software, which included 15 professionals, graduate students, undergraduates, post-doctoral students, programmers, and artists. After nine years at UMass, Bill decided to move back to a primarily undergraduate institution and arrived at SUNY Oneonta, where he now works with undergraduates, Cow Town Productions, and the UMass OWL team. Beatrice Botch is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Chemistry and the Director of General Chemistry at the University of Massachusetts. She received her B.A. in Chemistry from Barat College in Lake Forest, Illinois, and her Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from Michigan State University. She completed her graduate work at Argonne National Laboratory under the direction of Dr. Thom Dunning Jr. and was a post-doctoral fellow at the California Institute of Technology working in the group of Professor William A. Goddard III. She taught at Southwest State University in Minnesota and Wittenberg University in Ohio before joining the faculty at the University of Massachusetts in 1988. She is a co-inventor of OWL, the Online Web-based Learning system developed at the University in partnership with Brooks/Cole Cengage Learning. Along with colleagues Roberta Day and Bill Vining, she has helped to author most of the general chemistry content in OWL. OWL has been used by hundreds of thousands of college students across the nation to learn general and organic chemistry. Professor Botch has been principal investigator and co-investigator on a number of grants and contracts related to OWL development and dissemination. Current interests include the development of learning materials to help students succeed in chemistry and the creation of an interactive electronic textbook for general chemistry. Roberta Day received a B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Rochester, Rochester, NY, spent five years in the research laboratories of the Eastman Kodak Company in Rochester, NY, and then received a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Massachusetts. After postdoctoral work sponsored by both the Damon Runyon Memorial Fund and the National Institutes of Health, she joined the faculty of the University of Massachusetts - Amherst, rising through the ranks to Full Professor in the Chemistry Department. She initiated the use of on-line electronic homework in general chemistry at UMass, is one of the inventors of the OWL system, has been either PI or Co-I for several major national grants for the development of OWL, and has authored a large percentage of the questions in the OWL database for General Chemistry. Recognition for her work includes the American Chemical Society Connecticut Valley Section Award for outstanding contributions to chemistry and the UMass College of Natural Science and Mathematics Outstanding Teacher Award. Her research in chemistry as an X-ray crystallographer has resulted in the publication of over 180 articles in professional journals. She is now a Professor Emeritus at the University of Massachusetts and continues her work on the development of electronic learning environments for chemistry.
