Course Description

Evernote Hands-On Training introduces Evernote as a productivity tool which helps you collect, organize and share information easily using desktops, laptops as well as mobile devices.

You will learn how to create notes using a variety of media including text, images, audio, and video. You will learn how to clip information from the web and save it automatically in your Evernote account. You will learn how to organize your notes and share them with friends and colleagues.

If you have private or sensitive information you would like to store, you will learn how to encrypt that information. You will learn how to search and backup your notes and integrate your notes with social media.

This course is designed to train you in the skills mentioned above through almost 3 hours of video demonstrations accompanied by 7 hands-on projects. Each project has accompanying resources including directions and a guide which has step-by-step instructions and screenshots -- all designed to ensure that you have everything you need to successfully complete the project. In addition, each project has a video demonstration showing how I completed the steps so that you as a student can have something to compare your project with and to provide you with feedback which is necessary for successful learning.

If you take this course, watch the demonstrations and do the projects, you will have a thorough understanding of what is available in Evernote and more importantly, you will know how to use it.

Please note that the focus of this course is to get the beginning Evernote user familiar with what is available in Evernote by focusing on the desktop/laptop version. We do look at how to access notes and information within Evernote mobile apps but the mobile versions do not have all the features of the desktop version so you will need to follow the course primarily on your desktop or laptop -- if you try to follow this course by just using a mobile device, it will be difficult to follow the steps as there are significant differences between the features of the desktop and mobile versions of Evernote.

Once you become skillful using Evernote on the desktop/laptop, you can transfer those skills to your mobile devices.

What are the requirements?

  • You should have a desktop or laptop. You should know how to download and save files and install software on your operating system and be familiar with the basic features of your computer like how to create folders and files -- how to right-click your mouse -- basic stuff. I will be using the Chrome browser and I would recommend you should also be comfortable using Chrome or possibly Firefox -- both of these browsers work nicely with Evernote. I recommend against using Internet Explorer as it is too different from Chrome and Firefox and will be difficult to follow the demonstration steps. I will be using a Mac for all demonstrations but I will point out any important differences between the Mac and Windows interfaces as well as important differences in features available if any exist. The differences between the Mac and Windows version of Evernote are mostly cosmetic so you should not have much trouble following the demonstrations. If you run into problems, just send me a message and I will help you. Having a mobile device will be helpful but not necessary to learning the basics of Evernote; however, do not use a mobile device as your primary tool for learning Evernote. The desktop/laptop versions of Evernote provide the full feature set we will be learning and all Evernote features are not available on mobile devices so I do not believe a mobile device is a good tool for learning Evernote as a beginner. This course is for beginners. The basics of accessing notes and information on the iPad and iPhone will be demonstrated so once you are familiar with Evernote on the desktop, making the transition to your mobile device of choice should not be difficult.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • By the end of this course you will know how to use Evernote to create notes, notebooks and stacks using your desktop or laptop. You will learn now to install Everntote on your iPad or iPhone and be able to access and read your notes on your iPad and iPhone. If you have another type of mobile device, you should be able to apply what you learn to those devices but please note that all demonstrations of mobile devices are limited to the iPad and iPhone.

Who is the target audience?

  • This course is intended for beginners and those new to Evernote.
