Online Lab Books for Supervision of Project Students
Badge, J. L.; Badge, R. M.
Bioscience Education, v14 Article c1 Dec 2009
In this article, the authors report a case study where Blackboard's wiki function was used to create electronic lab books for the supervision of undergraduate students completing laboratory based research projects. This successful experiment in supervision using electronic notebooks provided a searchable record of student work and a permanent online record of student data, which has been retained to inform future projects. Tracking student progress was facilitated by automated date and time stamping of wiki entries. The students benefited from a significant reduction of transcription errors in writing up results, better record keeping, off campus access to and secure back-ups of their results. (Contains 6 figures.)
