Welcome to the Virtual CLC

Virtual CLC Joke of the Week:
Q: Why did the white bear dissolve in water?
A: Because it was polar!

 

The Chemistry Learning Piazza: 

Begin by joining our Piazza site at piazza.com/illinois/fall2020/clc.  Chemistry Learning Center staff members are available Monday - Saturday, 10 am - 12 pm & 4 pm - 6 pm (Central) to answer your questions.  You can post questions at any time; answers will be faster during our AM or PM shift!

  • Instructions on how to sign up and post questions to the Chemistry Learning Piazza can be found here.
  • Be sure to tag your post with the appropriate course number and topic.
  • Posts must include a screenshot of the problem, a picture of your work and a specific question.  Please note that CLP TAs are not allowed to provide step-by-step solutions or check answers for correctness.  
  • Please do not post requests for help with restricted resources, like quizzes or exam retakes. Contact your instructor or TA for further guidance!

Make sure that your written work is nearby to assist the CLP staff in locating errors. Our goal is to help you understand homework problems to set you up for success on the test!

 

Drop-in Zoom Office Hours:

Click here to join the daily Virtual CLC Drop-in Zoom Office Hours Monday - Friday, 12 pm - 6 pm (Central)

  • Make sure your questions are ready (screenshots or on-screen) before joining the meeting so that you are ready to share them with the CLC staff.
  • When you join, enter your name and course number into the chat window so we know what course you are working on.
  • Read through the Virtual CLC's Guide to Getting the Most Out of Zoom if you are new to video conferencing software!

Please make sure that you have attempted the problem a few times, and that you have work to share with the TAs!  You can take a picture of your work and email it to yourself in order to screenshare.

 

Zoom by Appointment:

Schedule a 30 minute Zoom session with a Virtual CLC TA. Up to four students can join a single session, so recruit your study group to book a time with a TA from your course!  Please be sure that you are booking only with TAs for the course you are enrolled in and that you bring a list of specific questions to your meeting.
