On the scientific side, the introduction of new techniques which can virtually see at molecular level has revolutionized the way chemistry is practiced today. One has started looking at nano scale and started designing and fabricating tools at nano scale. This can have far reaching consequences and the expected surprises can be in almost all sectors of human endeavour. It is therefore natural that the teaching and learning of Chemistry have also to change. This is evident from the methodology that one has to adopt since lecture based courses are not longer appealing and one has to use a variety of soft ware tools to demonstrate and make the molecules perform so that the teacher and the taught is enjoying the knowledge transfer process in a totally different platform.
