When I was a student, I was a copious note taker. Where are those notes now? After moving from dorm to apartment to graduate school to San Francisco, those notes are nowhere to be found. Two hours of searching my parentâ€™s attic I located my college photos, my old rice cooker, and several textbooks books. No notes.
Instead of taking notes in class like this:
Transcribe your notes into your wiki (or, for those cutting edge individuals, take notes directly in your wiki).
Why this is an awesome idea that saves you time:
1) Fully legible – not only can you actually read your notes, but formatting with bullet points, bold lettering and headings helps to organize ideas.
2) Share – Easily share you notes with other classmates. Why bother heading to library to photocopy your notes or risk losing them when you lend them to someone? Simply direct people to your wiki page.
3) Link – Add links to relevant articles and websites to create a comprehensive study guide. Don’t try to compile information right before the exam, that’s when you should be chugging coffee and cramming.
3) Search – Locate all your information with the click of a search button. Can your Mead notepad do that? Not yet!
