About Teacher Chris

  1. Thank you, but as DTLow says, it is the distribution that i am trying to simplify, and as there is already a stack.... Ultimately I would like to open 'notes', 'copy to notebook' and be able to check multiple notebooks from the list that comes up, for example by holding down ctrl or shift.
  2. Thanks DTLow! I'm leaving for the day now but will give this a try when I get to work tomorrow. I don't understand what you mean by 'no qualification on Notebooks'. Is it not strange that this is not included in Evernote as standard? As educators, giving out information to a class is 'everyday'! I guess that having one notebook for general information that I then share with everyone might be a plan. How many people can share one notebook? Back tomorrow...
  3. I have never done any scripting. What does that entail?
  4. I have used Evernote for a few years as portfolios and for giving feedback. I have two 'Plus' accounts as I have set up a notebook for each of my 300+ students.These are shared with them individually via email address. This works fine for them to send work to me, and me to give individual feedback. It doesn't however work as well if i want to get the same information in form of a note to a whole class or year group, as I have to 'copy to notebook' for each individual student - up to 90 of them. I collect my notebooks into stacks for each class and would love to be able to copy to all notebooks in a stack, but I can't see that this is an option. How do the rest of you solve this issue which must be a very common need for teachers?
  5. I am an Art teacher using Evernote to communicate with my students - I host about 100 notebooks which I have shared with each individual and they post their work and write process notes which I then assess. It has been great, but I am rather at a loss with the new update. Previously i could see whether a notebook was shared as there was a symbol on the notebook icon of three heads and shoulders next to my name - the sharer. After the update, most of these symbols have disappeared. Some students still have access to the shared notebook and some do not. Do I seriously have to go in to each individual notebook and share them again, this time through work chat? That is a massive amount of work and this time of year is a nightmare in terms of deadlines and assessment. I do not have a list of these emails as I assumed that once shared that would be all that was needed. I am also suspicious of Work Chat as many of my students have older mobiles and older operating systems with Evernote versions that cannot be updated for many different reasons. I cannot take it for granted that all students have Work Chat, or can I?
  6. Just want to add my voice to this thread. I am an Art teacher using Evernote to great success with all my students who document their process on notebooks that I created and shared with them. I give individual feedback without problem, but occasionally I want to send out a note to a class, year group or even the whole school. The long 'right click, move to notebook, click on notebook' repetition takes a long time when doing it more than a hundred times! A keyboard shortcut at least would help... Please Evernote!
  7. Thanks Gazumped! I'm glad that you skipped the homily - I did try the system out with 20 children over 3 months before starting to use it with all my students. The problems outweighed the benefits, but these two issues are persisting. I will try out your suggestions for a few days and then open a support ticket if the problems persist.
  8. Hi, I am an art teacher using Evernote with about 300 pupils in secondary education to document their process. I have opened and shared all the notebooks from a premium account on a mac and the children use a variety of different home computers and mobile devices, mostly finding their own way to use Evernote. A couple of students have had a problem in that notes that they add to the shared notebook do not show up in my account. These notes show up on their mobile devices with a green arrow in the top right corner, which I interpret as them not yet having been uploaded from the device. We have made sure that the account has 'synced', both from the device and on my macbook, but there is no change. Any ideas?
  9. Hi again everyone! I absolutely love the fact that one can now move notes simply from ones home notebook to a shared notebook on mobile devices. This is exactly what i was hoping for! Does anyone know whether there is a way of doing it on the evernote desktop app on a mac without copying and pasting?
  10. Hi, I am an art teacher using Evernote with about 300 pupils in secondary education to document their process. One problem that crops up regularly is that images that students paste from the web as inspiration show up in my account as blue question marks. I have opened and shared all the notebooks from a premium account on a mac and the children use a variety of different home computers and mobile devices, mostly finding their own way to use Evernote. Is there any general advice that I can give my pupils so that I can see the images that they post in their shared notebooks?
  11. That's great, but as my initial problem was moving an existing note from a 'home' notebook to a joined notebook, using an external email client is less interesting than Grumpy Monkey's suggestion of emailing it using the send option which would have been simple. Can you confirm the lack of subject line? Is there a workaround which doesn't involve cutting and pasting? If I have to cut and paste into an email, I can just as well cut and paste into the correct notebook (which it looks like is going to be the easiest option now anyway).
  12. OK. I think I see what is happening here. (1) Shared a notebook with your students giving them the ability to modify it (2) Confirmed that they have all "joined" your "shared" notebook (3) Want them to move notes from they made in their personal notebooks into the joined one using the Web interface Is this right? Try as I might, I cannot get the notes into the joined notebook either. It looks like they will simply have to download and install one of the native clients. Obviously (in my opinion), this is a major deficiency in the Web client, and I will be sure to let the Evernote development team know about it. Well, let's work with what we've got now! One workaround I would suggest is to give the students the Evernote email associated with the account that owns the shared notebook. From within the Evernote interface, students can email their notes to that address, and if they put @<notebook name> in the subject line, it will get filed into the appropriate shared notebook, and then they can then edit the note as they would like. LOL. I know, it is kind of bizarre that they cannot move a note from one notebook to another, but they can email it. Sometimes life works like that Thanks everyone. I have just tried to email using the inbuilt send icon ( an arrow pointing up and to the right) on the note. I sent it to my Evernote email address, but there was no subject line, so it ended up in my default notebook. gbarry, most of my students use their smartphone to post - there is no problem for most of them, but many use their family computer at home and I am loath to push the clients on them.
  13. Hmmm it's a bit complicated, but I'm glad that at least I am not going crazy! Thank you for all your help, let's hope Evernote get this sorted!
  14. Hi Grumpy Monkey, You are correct on point one and two, but most of my students are posting in their shared notebook. However, some of them have been posting into their 'home' notebook, and I want to help them move their work to the 'joined notebook'. Yes, I have have a premium account and have given them the option to 'modify'. I'm not sure which notebook you should look at. I opened a new account which isn't premium and shared a notebook with it. I created a note in the 'home' notebook and then tried to move it to the 'joined' notebook - this is as far as I can get. The option to move to the joined notebook is not there. How do I send you a private message?
  15. Hi Chris Sorry to sound repetitive, but the joined notebook is not available as an option on the dropdown menu next to the notebook name. I have even created my own test account, shared a notebook with it and tried it out this afternoon to check that I wasn't imagining things.
