Taking Notes ‘On The Cloud’

Many college students take notes in class by keying them into their laptops. To improve upon this effort, Cloud note-taking services allow busy students to stay organized by synchronizing their notes online through companies such as SpringPad, Evernote, SimpleNote and Microsoft OneNote.

Students access the services from any modern computer, smart phone or tablet with access to the Internet.

They can arrange notes into categories or sort and search through them. They can share notes across the web with others to collaborate on projects or keep them private.

Additional features offered by some services include the embedding of voice memos, pictures and website snippets into the notes as well as to-do lists with calendar integration.

Many of these services are easy to use and take little effort to start-up.

The best part — most are free.
