Here’s a free alternative to Microsoft OneNote and best of all it’s online so you don’t need to worry about losing any data. Also, you can easily share notes with other people. This is perfect for students sharing notes with each other. No need to try and get notes to each other in person the next day, or email back and forth. You can work together, live, online and see updates to the notes immediately. The website is www.evernote.com
You can setup different notebooks (or what I would call folders). Within each notebook (folder) you can have different notes. Unlike OneNote which has a notebook that has folders and tabs within those folders which contain the notes, Evernote has folders with notes. Very basic, but being online and free makes this the perfect tool for anyone wanting to keep track of notes online and colaberate with others. Especially students should find this useful for sharing school notes.
