ORGANIZE: Digital Notebooks

From MIIS Wiki

What is a digital notebook?

A digital notebook is a platform for taking notes, organizing and sharing information and keeping track of files and projects. You can use a digital notebook for almost anything: school assignments, project portfolios, meeting notes, to do lists, etc. Notebook pages can be connected to one another through hyperlinking and enhanced with digital media (audio, video, images), tables and graphs.
