Sharing notebooks in the classroom - introducing the NoteShare Classroom Team Starter Kit

With the introduction of NoteShare Server this past April, we've made it even easier to start sharing notebooks all the time whether it's in a classroom, across a campus or around the globe.  NoteShare Server is the easiest way to share and manage notebooks for anytime collaboration and access.  And to help teams get started with sharing their own notebooks and libraries, we've created a set of starter kits that bundle NoteShare desktop licenses with a NoteShare Server license; everything a team needs to share information and collaborate with dedicated notebook sharing.

With NoteShare, you still get instant notebook sharing (P2P) but in combination with NoteShare Server, you also get managed (hosted) notebook sharing for round the clock access and convenience.  No more drop boxes.  No more folders and user accounts.  And Windows users can view live shared notebooks in their favorite web browser at no additional charge.  Sharing notebooks has never been easier.

The Well-Organized Student - essential software for lifelong learning

We just released a new video on our Demo Theater site called The Well-Organized Student.  As we were developing the script and narration for the video (using a storyboard outline in a shared notebook),  I kept thinking back to when I was a student at Stanford and the tedious (frustrating) process of reviewing my lecture notes and outlines before exams.  Some were really good but many of my notes were just plain cryptic and never complete enough to cover all of the lectures.  My memory wasn't good enough to recall the key details. I really needed a second brain to help me organize my notes, a digital tool of some kind that I could use to help me study and review.

Fortunately, today's students can create very comprehensive course notes and outlines entirely on their laptops for quick and easy retrieval.  Using NoteTaker or NoteShare,  they can also turn on the Voice Memo and start recording the lecture itself while using Voice Memo Links to review the audio in the exact spot they typed a note or an outline in their notebook.  The organized student is outlining, taking notes, recording lectures and managing their academic work in one convenient place; in their digital notebook.  And if they're using NoteShare, they can share their notebooks.

Our video presentation highlights how students can use NoteShare (or NoteTaker) to help manage the demands of academic life.  And most importantly, students using our software are acquiring important skills that will continue to serve them throughout their academic and professional lives.  Mastering these information literacy skills can help them get things done on time, organize projects, share notes and learn to study together.  In short, it's essential software for lifelong learning.
