In the chemistry program at Centre College, the faculty instituted electronic laboratory notebooks for all research students beginning Summer 2012. Each student is provided an iPad preloaded with the appropriate software, specifically Notability and Dropbox. The students use the iPad application, Notability, to record data. These files are shared as PDFs with the appropriate faculty members and students collaborating on the same project. The current method for sharing files as PDFs is Dropbox.
