Stay informed and on-​task across devices with Evernote

Many of us use multiple devices in our daily lives, such as a laptop at home, a tablet at school, and a smartphone everywhere else in between. Staying organized and up-​to-​date on tasks across multiple devices can be a difficult task and often we resort to sending ourselves emails and texts just to keep up and remember what we were supposed to do. If you have ever found yourself doing this, then we recommend that you try Evernote!

Evernote is a free app that allows users to create notes on one device and then access and update those notes across other devices. Users can create multiple notebooks and stay organized on tasks no matter where they are or what device they are using. Evernote helps users stay informed and organized through notes, checklists, reminder alerts, and audio & photo notes. Some tasks that are well suited to Evernote could include:

  •  Creating an online notebook for a course that can be accessed on any device.
  • Taking notes in class on your tablet or phone, and then adding them to a document you are creating on your computer.
  • Utilizing and updating checklists on the device you are using at that moment.
  • Setting reminders and being notified across multiple devices 

The basic version or Evernote is free and requires a user to create an account with a valid email address. This account can then be used across multiple devices. 

Evernote is available for PC, Mac, iOS, and Android devices as well as through the web, so it can be used anywhere, anytime. Visit www​.evernote​.com or search for Evernote in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store for more information, download options, and account setup information.

  • Another great alternative is Microsoft OneNote. As faculty, we already have OneNote as part of our Office365 package. There are scads of tutorials and ideas on how to use it. There are even applications for converting your Evernote content to OneNote since Evernote has recently changed their pricing tiers.

    Don’t get me wrong, I love Evernote too. I use both on a daily basis.
