Implementation and student perceptions on Google Docs as an electronic laboratory notebook in organic chemistry
American Chemical Society
Electronic laboratory notebooks are gaining in popularity in industry and academia. Various types of electronic laboratory notebooks exist, and a variety of tools can be used for these forms of notebooks. Some tools are commercial products dedicated to being electronic notebooks, while individual organizations can develop ones for their own needs with tools such a OneNote and Google Docs. Google Docs was used as an electronic notebook in organic chemistry, and student perceptions were evaluated using surveys. These tools are used to reduce students’ time preparing for lab and writing reports. The implementation of the notebooks and the findings of students’ perceptions on the implementation are discussed.
