With Evernote, modern college students have the chance to take notes, do homework, complete classwork, and even save class handouts in their digital notebooks without having to use a pen, paper, heavy files or copybooks. Teachers will no longer hear excuses like “I forgot my homework at home”, “My computer crashed”, “I didn’t have Internet connection at home” or even the famous line, “I didn’t know”. With Evernote, no such excuses exist; students do not miss a beat with Evernote. Evernote is great for all subject areas; students can share their class notebook with their teacher, so that the teacher can access their work 24/7. At the same time, the teacher will never have to take notebooks away from students for grading purposes. Teachers can also share a digital notebook with students, including audio files, videos, snapshots of notes taken from the whiteboard, handouts, and even class announcements.
