Evernote is one of the tools we cover in my “Web 2.0 for Students” class at Lake Michigan College.  It also happens to be one of my personal favorite tools to help me stay organized and in my back pocket when I need to have information at my fingertips.

In my “WEB 2.0 for Students” class, we cover tools that help people collaborate in this fast moving world.    Having a set of tools that allow you to seamlessly share information with others so that they can add their input or provide you new information to react to is critical.

Evernote is a tool I cover in the class as an example of a well made tool that helps students, and anyone for that matter, organize and connect with others.   It is something you should look into as well.

8 Great Ways Couples Can Use Evernote Shared Notebooks

You use Evernote to capture and remember a lot of things that are relevant to you. Some of what you have in your Evernote account is also relevant to your significant other. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, we came up with eight tips for using Evernote to inspire one another, communicate better and get things done together.

8 Ways to Use Evernote as a Couple

  • For recipes: A couple that cooks together…We’ve heard from a number of users that sharing recipes makes planning weeknight dinners much easier. Share clipped or scanned recipes, as well as tasty memories you captured using Evernote Food.
  • For travel planning: Whether you’re planning a family vacation, a romantic weekend getaway, or a yearlong trip around the world, you can use Evernote to stay organized. Email your itineraries, save maps annotated in Skitch, store photos, and more to a Shared Notebook. [Learn more about ways to use Evernote to plan a trip]
  • For shopping and to-do lists: Get household chores and family responsibilities done faster. Share grocery shopping lists, checklists, and more. [Learn how to create a checklist in Evernote]
  • For sharing information about your kids: If you’re a parent, you have to retain a lot of information about your kids — from class rosters to sports practices, vaccinations to everything in between. Make sure you and your partner are both in the know about everything related to your kids’ lives by sharing this information using a Shared Notebook.
  • For home improvement projects: You’re already keeping track of kitchen cabinets, wood finishes, and vendor contact info in your Evernote. Put it all in a Shared Notebook and save yourself all those back and forth emails.
  • For doing your taxes: Did you know you could use Evernote to keep track of your tax documents and related information? Share these with each other and have handy access to everything you need when doing your own taxes or meeting with your accountant. [Learn how you could use Evernote to do your taxes]
  • For gift ideas: Make gift giving easier by sharing gift ideas for each other, kids, relatives and friends. [Learn how to use Evernote for remembering gift ideas]
  • For staying in touch over long distances: Capture all of the things that happen to you over the course of your day and drop it in a Shared Notebook to shorten the distance between you.

In class, students are asked to work on research projects.  The data they collect is stored in a shared folder on tools like Evernote.  (The instructor is added in so I can see how they are progressing, and who is actually doing the work.)

If you have any other ideas on how Evernote could be used, leave a comment.  Thanks.


Web Clipper – Evernote Corporation

Great tool for those doing research.  Evernote is a cloud application that I have found to be very helpful in collecting and organizing  data.

Web ClipperThe Evernote Web Clipper lets you save interesting stuff you see on the web. No more bookmarks, tabs, or open windows. See something you like, clip it and you’ll have it forever.Install Google Chrome extension

Many of the assignments students are given can be now completed on web sites.  Research, collecting information, sharing information is all done from a browser.  The old days of cataloging everything on 3×5 cards are not as convenient then simply clipping the content from with in page, or capturing the entire page to a service like Evernote.

A must have for anyone working in the WEB 2.0 world.
