One of the Top 100 Learning Tools from Jane Hart that the research team wanted to learn more information about was Evernote. Each person individually made their own account to learn more about Evernote and share information.
From what we have explored on Evernote so far, one can make to-do lists and gather information from classes, work life, or any other activities in a single folder. Evernote also allows individuals to attach photos or audio recordings to notes and share these files among colleagues, family, friends, or classmates. In Evernote, groups can also be created with other individuals to allow sharing between groups of messages, links, notes, or audio recordings. Using Evernote, one can take photos, record audio messages, set reminders, and send text messages. Evernote can also be accessed on any device. One is also able to create notes, take photos, or record audio messages without the need of Wi-Fi. Once the individual is reconnected to Wi-Fi, all the files will be synced to the notes and accessible on any device. Here is a link that we found with some helpful information to be a “master” of Evernote.
Evernote allows the ease of communication between individuals. For example, the research team has a group started on Evernote to collaborate information between one another. We can share photos, audio recordings, send messages, or share notes between one another. Evernote also allows individuals to set reminders for themselves, this can come in handy for meetings, classes, or sports practices. Reminders can also be synced to their calendar on their smart phone or the computer’s calendar. From our perspective, Evernote seems to provide easy access to its multiple features which are useful in our case with sharing documents between our research group of five individuals. On the other hand, we do not see using Evernote for our own personal use outside of the research team. Most of our notes from classes are hand written, we use other software programs to collaborate with partners on projects, and when composing videos or taking photos, we like to use editing software to edit our clips before doing anything with them.
Here are our preliminary thoughts on Evernote and we would love any feedback on how Evernote has impacted your lives in any shape or form.
