This study analyzed the questions posted on the chemistry Q&A board by students and teachers in a chemistry education homepage, in order to understand the difficulties in learning and teaching chemistry. The different tendencies were found in the contents and the motivations of questions by students and teachers. In Chemistry I, students raised many questions in the ‘Water’ unit, while teachers raised many ones in the ‘Chemical compound in our life’ unit. In Chemistry II, students asked many questions in the ‘Gas, liquid, solid’ unit, while teachers did in ‘Chemical reaction and energy’ unit. Students' motivations of questioning were ‘Explanation of unclear concept’, and ‘Problem solving’, while teachers' motivations were ‘Searching information’, and ‘Question in experiment’. The Q&A board provided a field in exchanging informations needed in learning and teaching chemistry. Educational implications were discussed on the use of Q&A board in chemistry education.
