Evernote for Academics
Evernote Price Changes (updated June 30, 2016)
Due to some recent plan and price changes from Evernote I wrote a post weighing the positives and negatives of staying with Evernote. In the end, if Evernote is your go to app for storing, searching, and researching then it is probably worth the price increase.
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.
Tips on searching 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.
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!
One of the best ways to get content into Evernote is through an excellent little app called Drafts. I’ve written about Drafts and Evernote before in my Evernote for Academics series. Granted, with the advent of iOS 8 you can now use the Evernote widget to start a document but if your just inputting text then Drafts is still better (as in cleaner, easier to use, faster, more options, etc.)
