Research this summer has pushed me over the edge into thinking that it really would make more sense to record data into an enotebook rather than the standard lab notebook - particularly for data analysis.
Does anyone have experience with electronic notebooks?
Last year, Kurt asked about electronic notebooks , but I didn't see any responses. He had some great questions. Here are a few questions that I'd love to know your thoughts on.
- What software have you used?
- How are you using the software?
- What are your experiences (both bad and good) using the software?
- Are you 100% electronic or are some things recorded on paper?
- How do your students interact with the notebook? What device do they use? Do they fill out forms or do things more organically?
- Is this something you do on your own or is it a department/university level resource?
I'm interested in hearing about people's experiences.
There is a nice clearinghouse of ELNs from the University of Utah (http://campusguides.lib.utah.edu/content.php?pid=148824&sid=3607264).
I'm experimenting with using Evernote at the moment. When I have a better idea of how this is going, I'll report back to the forum.
