Course Description

Learn how to use Notability for iPad - an amazing note taking app for students and teachers of all levels.

If you are using an iPad in school you know how valuable a great note taking app can be. The right app has to be fast, flexible, and powerful, but most of all it has to help you learn.

After researching dozens of apps for an Apple Distinguished 1:1 iPad school I discovered Notability.

This amazing app transcends basic note taking to become a flexible tool for teachers and students of all levels.

Course Overview

With over 60 video lectures this step-by-step course will guide teachers and students through basic and advanced topics to get the most out of Notability on the iPad. Each unit includes in depth videos, sample handouts, and a practice activity.

  • Getting Started - Learn what Notability can do and practice with the 'Welcome to Notability' note. Your homework for this section will help you brainstorm how you might use Notability.
  • Take Basic Notes - Practice taking handwritten and typed notes. Use the highlighter, eraser, and scissor tools and make sure your notes are named correctly.
  • Stay Organized - Setup binders and sections to keep your notes organized by course.
  • Take Advanced Notes - Don't you wish you could take a picture of the board, or create an audio recording of a lecture? This unit will help you do all this and more.
  • Annotate a PDF - If you are using other apps to mark up PDFs it's time to switch to Notability. This unit will cover moving PDF's into Notability, keeping them organized, and marking them up.
  • Pass in Notes - At some point you will want to pass in homework from the iPad. This section will walk you through how to send notes to email, Google Drive, and other apps on your device.
  • Settings - Learn how to back up your notes, sync your work to Google Drive and many more nuts and bolts topics in this unit.

Instructor Biography

Hans Mundahl, Founder & Lead Consultant at Hans Mundahl & Associates Inc.

I've been an educator since 1995 when I first stepped into the classroom as a Fulbright exchange teacher in the former East Germany. Since then I've been an Outward Bound instructor, a teacher, tutor, admission officer, house head, evening administrator on duty and I ran the experiential learning program at New Hampton School for almost ten years.


Today I focus on technology integration centered on values-driven technology integration and 1:1 iPad initiatives. Recently I had the chance to help New Hampton School become an Apple Distinguished School and I co-authored the iBook Teaching with the iPad available in the iBookStore

Now I'm the founder of a scrappy little company (one employee!) called Hans Mundahl and Associates, inc a digital strategy consultancy for schools and non-profits.

My free time is usually spent with my family but I'm also passionate about the outdoors and protecting the environment. I'm on the Board of Trustees at the Newfound Lake Region Association and when I have the chance I'm an active hiker, climber, and paddler.

My writing appears on EdSocialMedia and I've been quoted in Mashable and US News & World Report. I also speak frequently at technology and education conferences.
