It can be challenging to share a single paper notebook amongst group members when conducting lab work. What digital tools might be available that could help students produce and share high quality lab notebooks.

How it works

Icon - activity (1)

Richard and Daniel have investigated a number of options, including wikis, Onenote and other apps on iPads, and eLabFTW software. As part of this project, they have considered data security risks and accessability implications. They are currently developing criteria around what makes a good third year project notebook, and will test these tools against that criteria.

Daniel and Richard report is available here.
