Two interactive computer-assisted learning (C.A.L.) programmes dealing with basic chemistry concepts are presented. These deal respectively with oxidation numbers and inorganic chemical nomenclature. Both programmes were initially developed in the context of an introductory remedial or streamlining chemistry course taught in French at l'Universite de Moncton, Moncton N.B., Canada. An English translation of the programme on Oxidation Numbers already exists, whereas the translation of the Nomenclature programme is intended. Both programmes are well suited for students at the High School and first year University levels.
