Thing 6: Evernote

The tagline for Evernote is "Remember Everything"--and they mean it. Evernote is a cloud-based application used to take and store notes. You can access your notes anywhere you can get online--on a computer, your iPad, or your smartphone.

Some of the features of Evernote:
  • Sort notes into different notebooks
  • Notes sync between devices--if I update something in Evernote on my phone, it will show up the next time I log in on my computer.
  • Tagging notes makes everything easily searchable
  • Take audio notes and picture notes on any device with a microphone/camera
  • Create checklists for organizing long-term projects
  • Send notes to an Evernote notebook via e-mail (great for information you want to keep, but don't want clogging up your inbox).
  • Many of the databases we subscribe to export to Evernote, making it easier for students to keep track of their research
How can students use Evernote?

To complete Thing 6:
  • Sign up for Evernote
  • Create a notebook and add some notes, tagging them so you can find them later
  • On your blog, write about your experience with Evernote. Is something you'd find useful? Do you think students would find it useful?
