How Evernote can help

Here are some of the ways we use Evernote

Messy desk

  • Keeping control of bits of paper and hand written notes
  • Harvesting and keeping tweets - see the guide
  • Saving useful webpages, and adding notes. You can add the entire page, or just bits you select
  • Saving pages and articles to read later - why not set up a 'read later' notebook?
  • Planning and organising meetings or events - especially as you can share your meeting notebooks with other organisers
  • Collaborating on research projects - share useful links and information with fellow researchers via sharing notebooks
  • Hold that thought! Ever had a quick thought or idea but had nowhere to write it down? Use Evernote to make a quick note or to record an audio description
  • Capture useful images you've found on line (remember to check copyright permissions if you're going to use these for presentations etc)
  • Using Evernote on your tablet or smartphone? Lots of interactive apps are available via The Trunk
  • Take photos of whiteboards/flip charts/post-its used in teaching/conferences
  • Organise thoughts for lesson plans
