Evernote is a free online note-taking and
archiving software that is a great tool for students to take notes.
The first step is to go to Evernote.com
and create an account. So you click Create Account in the top right hand corner of
the screen and you'll fill in your information. Once you've created your
you can go to the web sign in and and sign in to Evernote.
Once you've signed in to Evernote
you will be taken to a page which shows all your notes. Since I've used Evernote
befor all my notes are listed order when I took them
however if you're new to Evernote this will all be blank.
On the left hand side you're gonna see all of your notebooks
which are really just file folders for storing and organizing all your notes.
To create a new notebook you click on the arrow next
notebook and click new notebook. Give it a name
and click Save.
And you now have a new notebook in the side panel.
If we click on that will see that it's empty.
So now we want to create a note. To create a new note
you simply click on the new note button at the top of the screen and you'll see it
looks similar to a word processing application.
So you can just start typing your note. You can give it a title.
We'll just call this one 'new note'. You can select which notebook it's going to go in
if are accidentally clicked the wrong notebook for example.
You can link it to a website
for example if your teacher is referring to a website in class
it's a great idea to link to that website so you can quickly access it
We'll just link this one to Algonquin College.
And you can also see this basic formatting tools.
You can attach a file to the document
or even copy and paste pictures. So now that we've created our note,
we'll click done and our note has been created.
And if we go into are note we'll see the web addresses there
and you can click on it right from your note and it's going to go straight to the
website that you linked from.
And this note will be accessible by
accessing Evernote.com on any of your
other computers or using the Evernote app for your
tablet or smartphone. So thanks for watching
