With current educational climates and technological advances, it is possible to deliver an integrated, personalised and engaging chemistry subject through online platforms. The current generation of students have emerged with pre-existing experience of the internet, tablets, smartphones, and computers and generally embrace the inclusion of technology in their education. The ample available software platforms available for blending the student experience and enhancing their deeper learning can be divided into four sections: the augmented laboratory, voice-over presentation, lightboard with augmented reality and virtual classrooms. In this Editorial, we will focus on these four main areas and discuss the common software that can be used to produce an online course. We will also give brief examples of student resources and tips for their creation.
