Study Smarter: 9 ways Students can use Evernote

It is troublesome and difficult to remember everything that was taught in class every time. So voila! Here comes Evernote. For those who still have not come across this app, it is an app that allows you to write now and remember later. It helps you to remember, everything. And to top it off, it is easy to use! Here are 9 ways you can use Evernote for:


  1. Take notes in class – This one seems like it should be obvious, but I can’t believe how many students still type their notes in multiple programs to deal with the availability problem. Evernote keeps every class note in a single application, making it so much easier to scan through several days’ worth of notes the night before a test.
  2. Go paperless –If you’re anything like me, I am the opposite of an organised person. Most of the time you’ll also probably have trouble keeping track of the handouts teachers like to pass out or the notes printed out. Here you can use your phone’s camera to quickly digitize your syllabi, project descriptions, and graded papers so that you never have to worry about losing the original copies.
  3. Portable textbooks –When studying for a test, sometimes you only need your textbook for a few charts and graphs. Instead of lugging that 1000-page monster to the library, just scan or take photos of the pages you need into Evernote, and access them online in your favorite study spot.


  4. Handwritten notes –As great as typing your notes can be, there are still some classes where handwritten notes are all but required. Once you are finished, always take a quick snapshot of your notes and paste it into Evernote, allowing you to access them anywhere. Never again will you have a minor heart attack when you spill coffee on your notebook.


  5. Manage your different lives –Students are so many things these days: scholars, interns, friends, club presidents. You can set up different notebooks in Evernote to give these activities their own space, but everything will still be in a central hub. It’s like having filing cabinets that are with you everywhere.
  6. Never forget a number –You’re asked to remember a lot of random numbers as students, especially at the beginning of the school year. It helps to keep your student ID#, mailbox combination, and even friends’ room numbers in Evernote, at least until they’re safely burned into your memory.
  7. Window shopping –Students love to buy new things. Unfortunately, we usually don’t have very much money.  Next time you see a pair of jeans tempting you from outside your price range, take some pictures of the display rack and the tag and store them in Evernote.  You’ll have no trouble finding the items again once you coerced some money out of your parents.
  8. Record important lectures –Professor speak a little too fast? Want to capture his hint-laden test review discussion in its entirety? You can record audio notes on your phone or iPad right in Evernote so you can rest assured that you won’t miss a thing.


  9. Organize your research –We have to juggle a lot of information sources when researching a paper. Evernote makes it easy to drop all those links, PDFs, charts, and book scans into a single, easily searchable notebook.  This beats the pants off frantically searching your hard drive and web history for sources when you have a due date looming.
