Evernote for Education

Evernote for Education
Android App: I use the desktop version at home and the office, the Android app on my HTC One smartphone, my tablets, web version on my Chromebook. The desktop version sync's all of the data to your computer (good for backup) and you can also export your notes in a variety of formats for backup. You can create new notes via desktop, web, or mobile version. You can also use your camera phone or web cam to take a snapshot and Evernote can even recognize the text in the image. This is very useful for capturing signs, posters, printed memos, and more and then being able to search for text inside the image. You can upload attachments to your notes in Evernote to keep documents organized with the notes they go with. You can also email notes, clip web pages, record audio notes, and scan papers, receipts and more into Evernote. I love Evernote. Does it Cost Money? Yes and No. All accounts have a limit of 100,000 notes. How Can I use Evernote as a Teacher, Student, Administrator? 1. 2. 3. Summary
