Edufrag wiki

Since it looks like the information structure of this blog is getting too complex, I created an EduFrag wiki. I am using Wikispaces because it is free and the look and feel is very clean, similar to Blogger. The RSS feed is also pretty sweet.

I have started to populate the wiki with Tutorials and references to related work. Feel free to contribute.

This map was modified from DM-edufrag-drexelcoas001.ut2

There is now an option to teleport to a lewis structure quiz

Or you can walk into an alkyne quiz

ChemSketch Demo

Yana has made a very nice Camtasia demo of how to use ChemSketch for the organic chemistry related maps. She shows how to create a reaction then save it in a format suitable for upload in Blogger and as a bitmap for later import as an Unreal Tournament texture. I learned several nifty tricks from this brief demo.

Modified this Map

Rooms were added to the Chem 242 map with pictures of Drexel COAS and a few departments. Also more player starts were added and moved to Drexel room.

EduFrag is live on the internet

It looks like the server is running in dedicated mode right now and is openly available on the internet with up to 10 players. The download of the textures via the game is very slow (maybe 20 mins) so I would recommend that anyone who want to play online download them from the blog first. Those of you creating the texture files, please delete any extra pics to keep the file size as small as possible. 14 megs for the EW file seems way too big for the number of pics in there.

The server should be running pretty much all the time. If you don't find it listed please let me know.

Organic Chem 242 Ch. 9 Quiz v.4

This is version 4 of the map and hopefully it works this time. I fixed the missing pictures from question 5.

Organic Chem 242 Ch. 9 Quiz v.2

This is the fixed version of the pervious map I posted. Some of the pictures were missing and the PDF image was reversed but that's all fixed now...with a few more things added (notice the image).

Organic Chem 242 Ch. 9 Quiz

This map was created from an organic chemistry quiz by converting the 10 questions in ChemSketch. Each room has 1 right and 3 wrong answers. Going through a wrong answer will cause you to you better know your chemistry!

Textures for the map


This map has Dr. Bradley's e-mail displayed on the floor and the blog web address. Just in case you want to ask questions or know where the map is from.

A few corrections DM-edufragb003

This map has had a few changes made. A pit is corrected and textures changed.

General Map DM-edufragb001

This map is general and can be used for any subject. The green doors represent where a correct answer would be, and red wrong answers.

Organic Map DM-edufraga001

This map has been created using an organic chemistry quiz from Dr. Bradley's Chem-241 course.

New Map2 DM-orgofragb006

Here is a link to a slightly different map.


Modifications: a larger room for question 1 doors, one door for question 3

Allison's Map Edit: DM-OrgoFragB005

I used quizzes from Dr. Bradley's Chem 241 course to create a partial map. This is a shortened example of what much time and effort can produce to help students learn in a new way. Soon I will have a more complete map demonstration available for students to try.

Orgo Frag map 004

We are currently in the process of converting our Unreal Tournament GOTY (Game of the Year Edition) organic chemistry map to UT2004.

The current OrgoFrag map version DM-orgofragb004 is available for download here (textures). Built by Allison.

This is a simple map with 3 rooms and enol chemistry taken from CHEM 243. As usual, there are chemical reactions on the walls. Walking through a correct reaction leads to other parts of the map. Walking through an incorrect reaction will lead to death by falling in a pit.

We played this one in DeathMatch format on the Drexel LAN. By request, we'll schedule some sessions here (OrgoFrag server). Otherwise download the map to give it a spin.

All ideas and feedback by chemistry students or anyone else with interest are welcome. Just put your feedback as a comment on the post in this blog with the relevant map version.

If you with to contribute to the development of maps let me know so I can add you as a contributor to this blog.
