  1. All they would have to do would be to right click on the note you shared with them and copy it to a notebook of their own. They will then be able to edit it and add their own notes to it without it changing anything in your notebook.
  2. Hi J, When you go to share a notebook, you should have an option to decide if members can view only or modify. You would want to select view only. Let me know if you need more help! Megan
  3. If you haven't put a ton of effort into building your site yet, you might want to check out this years DevCup winner, Postach.io. They publish notes that you select in a blog format. But then your site is hosted by them, rather than what you've already built. They have a lot of great looking themes and choices so I would check it out! It might work really well for you.
  4. Hi Flavio, I'm Megan, the Student Ambassador. I would love to help you out with this in any way that I can. Feel free to get a hold of me!
  5. Thanks for sharing this, Greg! Definitely a great look at using Evernote for papers. I use a very similar process as well for my own papers. I'll be sure to share your post with my fellow students! Megan
  6. Hi apmot. While you can't insert straight from the file into your notes, something that I will often do for my own classes is just copy and paste the text from the pdf of the powerpoint. That way I'll have everything from the slides and can fill in my own notes as we go along. Have you tried doing that?
  7. Those are great points! I can also see the benefits of it for some classes. In discussion based classes, it definitely can make sense. That is a great point! It definitely doesn't stop me from using Evernote for school either. Plus it's giving me a chance to try out the new Evernote Moleskin I can also see the reasoning behind a no tech policy. In discussion based classes, it definitely can make sense. And thankfully, as you said, it's still a great tool that's available to us outside of class!
  8. That's such a good point! Everyone learns in such different ways and I think that everyone should have their choice. Most of the professors that I've spoken to about their policies only have them in place because they think that their students will spend class on Facebook rather than listening to lecture. But just because you take away a student's laptop, doesn't mean that they will pay attention. But no matter what a professor's policy is, at least we can still search all of our notes!
  9. Hi nashp! Welcome to posting on the forum! I've used Evernote for a lot of different writing (including music reviews) and could definitely discuss that if you'd like. More on point with writing songs though, I thought you might find some of the posts on the Evernote blog useful: http://blog.evernote.com/2011/04/11/6-ways-musician-francis-macdonald-of-the-band-teenage-fanclub-uses-evernote-–-music-series/ http://blog.evernote.com/2012/04/25/evernote-for-songwriting-song-story/ http://blog.evernote.com/2009/05/08/user-profile-dave-levy/ Hope these help!
  10. I was definitely excited to get the Moleskine at ETC and will be using that for one of my classes. I have also used my iPad for handwriting. Paper is always my last resort for classes that I have no other choice in.
  11. I don't know about everyone else, but I hate when professors tell me that they have a "no technology policy" in their classes. Of course, I have 3 this semester. So rather than having all of my notes and handouts already in Evernote, I take my notes by hand and then immediately scan them in when I finish the day. Not ideal, but still works. Does anyone else have these kinds of classes at their schools? How do you like to handle them?
  12. Welcome to Evernote! Yes you can upload all of those files into a note. If you're using the Desktop client, just drag the file into the note and then sync!
  13. Looks like some great ideas here! As said earlier in this topic, there are endless ways that you can organize your Evernote account. I like to use Evernote for pretty much every aspect of my life, so I have a separate notebook for each of my classes, with all of them in a single stack. This allows me to keep things separated by class, but at the same time, I can close the stack if I don't want to think about school for a few minutes. Keeping your textbooks in a digital form is an excellent idea! It's actually why I ended up getting an iPad. I wanted to be able to carry around all of my class materials without actually having to carry all of my materials. Having searchable books makes everything easier. All of my friends are jealous when I can just easily search through a massive text book to find the one sentance that I need to reference. JCM listed some great ideas in his reply! Check them out. Also, the links that GrumpyMonkey posted are excellent. Keep the ideas coming!
  14. As we get closer and closer to July (can't believe I'm saying that), a lot of students are getting ready for their freshman year of college. How are you using Evernote to prepare? Keeping track of all the things you need to get? Organizing your schedule? How else are you using Evernote?
  15. Well, as a student myself, even though I am at the college level, I have definitely used Evernote to improve my education. Being organized can be a huge asset to a student. But, not every student is organized. To use myself as an example, when I was in high school (in my pre-EN days) I was still incredibly organized. Binders, dividers, planners, I went all out. But other students were not that way. Now, sometimes that didn't matter and they still did fine, but for some students, that lack of organization was the difference between high grades and the ones that they were receiving, simply because they couldn't find their information to study/write papers. Evernote makes it easy. Even for an unorganized person, it's pretty much impossible not to be able to find something. The search options are so advanced that you can find anything you've captured pretty much instantaneously. That makes it easy to pull together research for a paper or create a comprehensive study guide. And in the end, that has definitely made me more motivated, simply because I know that when I sit down to write a paper, I'm not going to have to go through the same research possibly hundreds of times just to finish. But, obviously this will be different for every student. That is just my personal experience.
