chemistry virtual lab

I have talked with a few faculty in our College about how far e-learning can be pushed and the limitations usually end up with the laboratory component. Project IrYdium is a virtual chemistry laboratory that is sponsored by NSF and freely available for educational purposes. It will probably not be possible to completely replace a hands on experience but the way this software breaks down the steps of doing a laboratory experiment is really quite realistic. It might be useful as a pre-lab practice or as additional laboratory exercises. Even the meniscus in the burette looks good!
Here is a short video demo
Here is the link to the website.
