Increasing undergraduate students’ understanding of our ecosystems by way of ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) is rather important for the sustainability and future of our world. With this aim, ICT supported educational modules were developed that are oriented toward the preservation of the existing ecosystem in the subjects of a) global environment, b) renewable energy, c) greenhouse effect and d) climate and e) green chemistry. All of the undergraduate students that had an Internet connection could access the website (www.kimyaegitimi.com and http://www.kimegi.hacettepe.edu.tr). ICT supported educational modules for the preservation of the existing ecosystem are educational tools. They incorporate elements that determine the students’ readiness along with concept teaching, HOCS applications, and student group activities (groups of three). Target questions and Internet based searching regarding these questions are incorporated into the students’ reports and presentations. At the end of the study, the effect of these modules on the students in different branches of achievements was investigated.
