Evernote allows you to take, store, and organize audio notes. This is a convenient feature, as it allows students to record lectures, meetings, or audio messages that they can then label and store in the corresponding notebook. Although the audio quality isn't the greatest when you use this application, it can still be an effective way to record important content.
- [Instructor] We've taken notes inside of Evernote using a couple different methods. First, we typed them directly into Evernote. And next, we used some pen and paper notes which we scanned and then entered into a specific notebook within our Evernote account. In this video, I want to take a quick look at another way that we can add content, and that is by using audio. Right now I'm inside of the Android application for Evernote, and I'm going to go to the bottom right and click on the plus sign. This is to add another note.
Now you'll see I get the different options, for camera, attachment, and the third one down is audio. If I click this, it will begin our recording. So as you can see in the upper left corner, it is counting up from four, five seconds, six seconds, this is recording the audio. So you could use this to record a lecture, you could use it to record a meeting, or you could simply use it to record your own voice and add in an audio message instead of typing something in.
I think this is a powerful way to use this application. Now, in the top left, if I click stop, you'll see that it adds this audio file directly into this note. It gives us the date, the time it was entered, the size of it, and more. We can click here, and we have some options to play it, copy it, remove it, or we can even download it. So I'm going to back out of that. Now at the top, I can change the title of this, and we can go in, now I usually would enter in the date and everything with this, but I'm going to simply type in lecture notes.
And then I will save it. If I back out, you'll see that we have added in the lecture notes that we can access here. Now if I go into the desktop app, first I'm going to go to the top and click the refresh or sync symbol, so here it will sync my files. And now if I go into the biology notebook, you'll notice that right away it syncs the notes that we typed in, the notes we scanned in, as well as the lecture notes. So all of them exist inside of this notebook.
Now you can also use the desktop app to record as well. So here if I wanted to click inside of the psychology notebook and let's say I want to add a new note, and I'll title this lecture notes, and then when I click inside the body to start typing out notes, you'll notice we have the rich text editor, but to the right there is an icon of a microphone. If I click this again, I can start adding my notes by clicking the record button and adding in audio notes.
So again this could be recording a lecture, a meeting, or just me adding in audio rather than typing it out. I'll click stop, and again it adds that. So Evernote allows us to add audio, which can be a very effective way to enter content and save it in our account.
