Geology Department: Online Catalogue of Minerals for Student Development

Dr Juergen Reinhardt, lecturer in the Geology Department collaborated with the CIECT team to design and develop an online catalogue of minerals.  The Minerals In Thin Sections (MINTS) site – is a database catalogue of various minerals. Hence students will be able to access an alphabetical list of minerals.  Each mineral has a scientific description of its nature, accompanied by photographs of thin slices through the minerals, under varying light spectra. The included image provides an example page, of a mineral’s physical properties; and how it is identified.

**It should be noted that Dr Reinhardt is also teaming with stakeholders at other institutions, namely: Universität Bonn, Germany, University of KwaZulu-Natal and Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Germany.

Contact the CIECT team to effectively design and develop online environments for student development.
