Our internal systems

These are the internal systems we use to help us do our best collaborative work. If you have just joined the lab, make sure you can access all of the shared resources and that you have created (or already have) individual accounts where one is required.

Login with your email

Basecamp: we use basecamp to manage our projects, keep track of who is doing what, and communicate with each other. All lab members will use basecamp in some way or another. You’ll be invited to join the lab’s basecamp at your sas.upenn.edu address.

Github: You’ll need a github account to work on lab code. If you don’t already have an account, I recommend signing up for the student developer pack – the way we use github is free, but this pack provides lots of cool (normally paid) resources for students.

Gitbook : How we maintain the ChildLangLab Wiki, our work in progress knowledge base that describes what we do and how we do it.

HubSpot: Hubspot is a CRM (customer relationship management) system that we use to manage our interactions with participants, including email, scheduling appointments, and tracking the success of our recruitment efforts. You’ll be invited to join the Child Language Lab HubSpot at your sas.upenn.edu address.

Google drive: We use google drive to manage shared files in the lab. Files on which you are invited to collaborate will be shared with you personally, via your @sas.upenn.edu address.

Shared lab login
