Yes, I know, I am later than usual posting but I do have a good reason. OPSRC is hosting workshops presented by Dr. Lloyd Sain today and tomorrow. If you have not heard Dr. Sain, you are missing out!

In case you have missed it, Teaching and Learning is hosting a webinar on April 8 about our new favorite app, Evernote. If you have ever felt the need to streamline and organize your life, Evernote may be the answer.

I can organize the notes into notebooks, set reminders, share notes with others, or invite others to chat and collaborate on notes or notebooks. The notes can be simple reminders, notes I typed at a meeting, pictures, screenshots, audio reminders, or even an entire webpage.
