Spectral Game helps scientists to curate and keep track of Spectra Files by playing a chemistry based game online
The spectral game was developed by Jean-Claude Bradley, Andrew Lang and Antony Williams.
It is a game with a purpose. It was conceived by Jean-Claude Bradley (Drexel University) and Andrew Lang (Oral Roberts University) based upon a 3d nmr spectra game they developed for Second Life.
It is not just a fun game to enhance learning for college chemistry students, but the game itself uses crowdsourcing techniques to help curate spectra files submitted to ChemSpider. By keeping track of spectra files that are missed most often it helps identify low quality or incorrect spectra files. Players may also flag and comment of spectra, helping ChemSpider curators.
