  1. Evernote would be a great way to store the PDFs, but it's probably not what you're looking for in regards to annotation and recording audio. Have you tried Notability? It may be what you're looking for. Once you annotate and record audio to your Notability note, you could then send that file to your Evernote account and have all the storage and search features Evernote offers. You might also look into Livescribe. It's a great paper/digital combination. I use both for note-taking, and in the end, it's all saved to Evernote. Jordan
  2. Betsy, I'm not in admissions, but I am a school administrator (AP) who is paperless thanks to Evernote and my Fujitsu ScanSnap scanner. As an administrator, I have several papers that come through my office every day (discipline referrals, leave requests, observation notes, lesson plans, etc.), and I scan everything into Evernote. I use tags to document specific-teacher documents (like leave requests, observations, notes, etc.) to pull up all the documents for one teacher. For discipline referrals, I have create one note for each week and upload the PDF scans of referral notices to that one note each week. I imagine that in admissions, you have several different documents that come in (transcripts, application letters, referrals, etc.), and I would recommend creating a system of tags and notebooks for applicants. You will also have the ability to share notebooks with your colleagues and that will help when trying to track down a certain document. Going paperless with Evernote works great for me! Hopefully you can make it work for you as well.
  3. I had some students run into this same issue. I had them delete the app from their device and re-install it. It worked like a champ.
  4. If I'm understanding your question correctly, you're asking if it's possible to create a template note. The answer is yes and no. There is not a "template" feature, but you can create a note (the template you want to create) and then copy that note several times to the same notebook. I believe you'll have to use the desktop Evernote version (PC or Mac) for this, but it's a great feature and will probably solve your problem. You may be able to find more answers to some of your questions at http://jcollierblog.com/. Jordan
  5. Once a photo, document, or any other file has been uploaded to Evernote and synced, it's there. Essentially, you now have two copies of the file or picture. What you do with the file on your device afterwards is up to you. The one saved to your Evernote account is there until you delete it.
  6. Hello, Sara. Having a class notebook is a great way to share resources with students and stay organized. In order to share the notebook without using a public link, you'll need to invite each of your students using the email address they used to create their own Evernote accounts. They'll receive an email with a link to your notebook and will then be able to sync with it. I hope this helps. If you'd like more Evernote ideas, check out the blog I used to document our classes' Evernote experiences last year at http://jcollierblog.com . Have fun! Jordan
  7. Toby, Great question! I currently use the Fujitsu ScanSnap for my class portfolios, but it isn't able to scan from notebooks. Depending on how often you'd need to scan from notebooks, using a scanner app for those specific assignments may work. For everything else, I don't know if there's a better scanner (at least for me). I'd love to hear what direction you end up going. Have fun! This link may help you out http://jcollierblog.com/evernote/creating-student-portfolios Jordan jcollierblog.com
  8. This summer I'll be leading several workshops teaching other teachers how I've been able to use Evernote to extend my classroom and help students when they are working outside of my classroom. You can read more about the workshop at http://evernoteforstudents.wordpress.com/2013/04/12/extend-your-classroom Or you can watch a video about using Evernote in the classroom by clicking here: http://vimeo.com/63897912 Using Evernote this year has been a great experience for me and my students and I'd love to share all the benefits with as many teachers as I can. If I can help you in any way, reply to this post or find me on Twitter (@JCollierAR). Enjoy the rest of the school year. Finish strong! Jordan
  9. Awesome! College students definitely have different needs than junior high students, but maybe my blog will help you get some ideas. In September, I posted a short ebook download titled 19 Practical Evernote Ideas for Students. It may help. I'm really looking forward to reading your ebook to get some new ideas for my students.

  10. Art, When I scan my students' assignments, I save them as individual PDFs and send them directly to Evernote using the "Import Folders" feature. When they're in Evernote, I am able to see the document and then I just drag each assignment to the appropriate student's folder (which is shared with the student and parent). This has saved me when having to search for a specific assignment in a stack of several. Jordan Collier
  11. Ted, I'm not sure about your email account questions, but I used Evernote in my 8th grade classroom. Here's a link to a post from earlier this year as I had my students set-up their accounts. It may be what you're looking for. I hope this helps. http://evernoteforstudents.wordpress.com/2012/09/05/getting-students-started/ Jordan Collier
