    Can you make some videos specifically for nursing students? Maybe on some tips for studying for specific classes, videos on clinicals, etc. I love your videos and I’m starting my BSN program this month!

    OneNote's multiDevice capability makes it the best in my opinion.

    Do you use a font for your note titles? (@ 1:35 you have Central Venous Catheters as a title for your notes). I really love the look and would love to use it for my notes if it is indeed a type of font!

    Hello! It was an excellent video. Can you please tell what is the storage option for your iPad? How long have you been using it? And how much storage have you filled up? I have recently purchased an iPad Pro 64 GB version mainly for note-taking and studying but already having storage anxiety.

    i really love the aesthetic of the video and how informative is but i kinda feel left out since you start off by saying that 'you need' an iPad/Macbook/Apple device and i can't afford one lol

    I know it sounds stupid bc i should assume that i can do the same with an android device and a stylus but i would appreciate if you were more neutral about the devices

    I knew about MS Surface when i was in med school but i was too poor to buy it. It's a boon for med/eng/scince students. Now i have an IPP now.

    Thanks for this helpful video! Do you use digital notetaking for math courses as well? If so, how does the experience compare to paper?

    I’m constantly use digital notes in personal and professional life. Google Keep have simple and useful performance and great synchronization, but don’t have a folders. I’m solve this issue with using a tags. One Drive have directory but laggy. In general applying digital notes is so comfortably – you have access to necessary information in any time, in any place, in any device.

    The only issue with Microsoft for students is that when the school doesn’t have password reset recovery, for logging onto any app versions of Microsoft apps. Then a student can’t log in because of their password is not allowing them to access the app.

    This is why I prefer note-taking app that doesn’t require you to log in, but I still have to use OneDrive as they have 1TB of storage for students to use. I need to go back and have my password reset, when I go back to class the first week of September.

    I think annotating is passive way of being an active learner. Because writing on PowerPoint slides shows that you’re not taking the time to read, and transcribe the information into your own words.

    I learned this from Study Less, Study Smart: What I wish I would’ve done by Med School Insiders on YouTube. Instead of PowerPoints stick to the note taking methods you usually do for synthesizing information. And also I suggest making summary sheets, as they can help you brief up what’s covered in the lecture. Hope that helps.

    my clinical instructors doesn't provide us with the powerpoints. But it's from the book provided and other books and some are taken from the internet. I feel left out…

    Great video! I’ve been digital for over a year. Started out with one note and had an issue after three months where EVERYTHING in my library disappeared from every platform. No idea what happened, but it was absolutely devastating as all my notes for my exams were on there and I had to essentially start over. after that I switched to GoodNotes and google docs, using google docs to write on the computer which I then export to GoodNotes as a pdf so I can annotate them 😊

    Such a helpful video! Can I ask which version of OneNote you are using on the MacBook Air? Mine has a different layout and limited features despite being the latest version and on the same device :'(

    A little tip: I’d bring one or two power banks with me in case there aren’t any plug sockets available in the classroom, so that my iPad can stay charged while taking notes

    This is so helpful! This will be my 2nd semester back in “harder classes” I did my last 4 years of my bachelors as an art major so it’s been a transition. Plus I also got a job doing guided study sessions on A&P1, essentially I’ll be sitting in A&P 1 and taking A&P2 at the same time. Fun.

    Quick tip: If you're like me and have an Android device and an iPad pro, a good alternative of airdrop is sendanywhere it's very intuitive and works great

    I’ve always tried to use One Note but have never succeeded. Hopefully your walkthrough and explanation will get me through it. Can’t wait for that video!!

    Do you also do digital planning as well?

    Anette Castro

    (August 13, 2019 - 11:18 pm)

    Can you maybe do a video on tips about how we can use digital note taking when outside of school? I have already have the ipad, the apple pen, and the apps for note taking…but I'm still a junior in high school and don't have enough confidence in taking my ipad to school because someone can steal it or etc. Is there any tips you can give on what else I can do even if I do the note taking outside of school?

    PS. Loved how informative your video was💜 🙂
