Note Taking Tools

LifeHacker is an interesting blog related to the Getting Things Done principle – based on a book by David Allen which will be part of our course at a later session. This article about Note Taking tools describes the top five tools in that category, based on an online survey by LifeHacker (which is also available). The top five include: Evernote (Mac & Win versions, plus web version), pen(cil) and paper (has some very interesting links such as a Geek to Live: Take great notes article by editor Gina Trapani), Microsoft One Note, Google Notebook, and Personal Wiki (GTDTiddlyWiki).

I would also add the Zoho Notebook, one of the many excellent Zoho productivity applications (all free and web based), and one of my favorites.

The article is valuable if you just evaluate some of the products and your current process of taking notes – a major part of learning about how you learn – and adding some new support for your self-directed learning skills. So whether you are ready for web based tools, new types of desktop based tools, or even new ways to approach the ol reliable pen(cil) and paper, there is something here for you to evaluate and ponder.
