EVERYTHING my students need for the lab is in the LabArchives notebook. The flexibility is amazing and I have complete control of the content. The TAs love that they can grade and comment quickly in LabArchives, giving students instant feedback without any paper handling. ~ Dr. Michelle Driessen, Director of General Chemistry, University of Minnesota
Just thought I'd let you know that even our 3rd year (senior course) students are voting with their feet for LabArchives. Even though this is their last semester (traditionally not a time when new things are well received or tolerated), 90% of them have chosen to complete their lab records and write ups in LabArchives rather than the tool that they had previously been used. ~ Dr. Gareth Denyer, University of Sydney
Our experience identified these benefits of going digital: continual progress monitoring, protocols can be updated at anytime, help prepare graduates with a real-world research tool, etc. Based on my experience, the feedback of demonstrators and students, I recommended that LabArchives be used as the norm in the place of paper-based laboratory notebooks in all undergraduate practical classes. ~ Dr. Henry Greathead, Lecturer, School of Biology, University of Leeds
