Disclosure: I know one of the developers for this product.
I wish there was a category that would cover IQ nd VRC for stuff like this!
I was a beta user for HeatCorp’s EDEN (Electronic design engineering notebook). I really liked it and I think you might too!!!
I’m a middle school robotics teacher and all of my students benefited from the electronic notebooks. From my inexperienced teams that barely did it to the teams that would record everything… It was really great. Pictures went in without a problem and their code (from blocks to text) can be copied quickly in as well. The students are managed by the coach if they needed to change teams, and you have a single URL that will last for the season as the team progresses.
It was really easy for me to grade their notebooks as well. We use Canvas, and the kids would just put their link into Canvas each week and I would just check the dates for the entries from there.
A few student examples:
