Over the last couple months I wrote a series on how to better use Evernote in an academic setting. Below is a summary of the posts with links to each one. You can also find this list at the top of the page by clicking on the Evernote menu item.
The title is pretty self explanatory but this post just summarizes what the Evernote for Academics series covers. If you are interested in going through the whole series then start here.
If you do a quick Google search for “organizing Evernote”, “tagging vs. notebooks”, or “Evernote file management” you might be quickly overwelmed about all the “answers” and “solutions” to how to organize Evernote. I attempt to provide you with ideas of ways you can use tagging and notebooks within your Evernote workflow.
Included in this post are three videos that I created:
- Using an “Inbox” and Notebook naming conventions
- Using Skitch to Capture Screenshots for Research
- Creating a Table of Contents in a Notebook and Other Tips
One of the great things about Evernote is you can email notes, documents, and photos to your Evernote database. This post shows how you can easily change your default Evernote email address in order to remember it more easily.
The power of Evernote is in the various ways that you can dump everything into it. This post highlights different ways that are especially useful in an academic setting.
One of my favorite iOS apps is Drafts. This video shows how you can use this app to quickly unload your thoughts and get them into Evernote using your iOS device.
Evernote would be useless if you were not able to search for all your notes! Thankfully, Evernote has powerful search features which I cover in this post. I also created another video explaining some of the search functionality in Evernote.
This post highlights the many different ways that Evernote can benefit you in the classroom. I also highlight some helpful keyboard shortcuts that will turn you into a Evernote wizard.
If you use Logos Bible Software then check out this video I created that allows you to easily link your Evernote notes with Logos. This allows you to click on a link in Evernote and take you right to the resource you cited in Logos. See the video here
Research is a key component to anyone in academics. This post highlights a variety of research workflows with Evernote.
The final post in the series is a guest post from Madison Pierce. Here she shows us how she uses Evernote in her studies. Great stuff here!
