In this study, smart phones used as an education tool in the chemistry course at the subject of naming chemical compounds, to assess the effects of smart phones. The multi media and text messages, which have been sent to students’ smart phones, include the names, formulas, pronunciation, usage areas of compounds and questions related with compounds. These messages have been supported with audio visual contents to make information permanent. At the second step of this study, to evaluate the understanding level of students in the field of naming and writing compounds, questions have been sent via message. In addition to this, attitudes of students belonging to this lecture have been researched. As a result of evaluating gathered data, this study ha
