Abstract Learning of chemical formulation and nomenclature for university students is becoming less and less stimulating for first-course degree students, which further have marked deficiencies in both the initial level of knowledge and skill sets. As a consequence, this fact leads to motivational and interest problems for the subject, and more specifically, for the seminar classes. An initiative have been proposed which includes the use of a free mobile application (Socrative) to complete initial and final questionnaires, with the aim to improve the level of participation in the seminar classes of formulation, and to establish the bases for a new evaluation system. This work details the new followed methodology as well as the obtained results. The results show how the use of the application improves the marks in formulation and nomenclature, the class attendance, as well as that increment the student satisfaction for this type of teaching.
