Which digital lab kit resources in my Dropbox can I modify to better suit my course?

You are welcome to modify any of the resources except for the PDF lab manuals. Any modification to the lab protocols voids the liability policy that covers each kit user.

You are encouraged to share the Dropbox link, and this guide, with those instructors who need access to the digital lab kit resources.
