The Oregon NMR consortium was created to provide access to a modern, high-field 400 MHz NMR spectrometer for students and faculty at several two-year and small four-year institutions. Students use both on-site and remote access to conduct their NMR experiments. Remote access involves connecting to the NMR console over the Internet. Features of the consortium are described, including the details of remote access, sample transport, and data processing. This paper also discusses the impact that the access to the NMR spectrometer has had on student achievement of several learning goals in the organic chemistry courses at the partner institutions.
