Vernier and LabArchives strive to make it easier for higher education students to export and analyze scientific data

data-vernierVernier Software & Technology and LabArchives have partnered to streamline the data-collection process for higher education students. New system features allow students to directly export data from Vernier Logger Pro software to LabArchives Electronic Laboratory Notebook (ELN), whereas previously students had to save the file locally and manually upload it. Students can now also directly open Logger Pro from LabArchives ELN.

“Digital work spaces appeal to today’s tech-savvy students and help prepare them for real-world lab practices where electronic laboratory notebooks are widely used,” said David Vernier, co-founder of Vernier and former physics teacher. “Logger Pro’s new functionality with LabArchives further supports the use of electronic laboratory notebooks in education by simplifying the data-collection process, saving students time, and facilitating collaboration during college-level labs.”

Logger Pro is a data-collection and analysis software for Windows and Mac computers. It supports data-collection from more than 80 Vernier sensors and enables real-time graphing, features powerful analysis functions, and supports intuitive hands-on learning in K-12 and higher education science and STEM classrooms.

“This partnership provides a seamless mechanism for students to enter their analyzed data into the leading Electronic Lab Notebook. We are excited to bring this new import option to more than 100,000 end users,” said Earl Beutler, CEO and co-founder of LabArchives, LLC.

The LabArchives ELN provides both professional and classroom workflow solutions. The cloud-based ELN, LabArchives, is currently used by tens of thousands of students and professors to manage, engage, monitor, and evaluate students’ lab course work. LabArchives promotes improved student engagement and success. Its enhanced communication and intuitive technology eliminate the need for paper notebooks in lab courses.

The new Logger Pro functionality for LabArchives is now available for free for both Windows and Mac users.
