Note taking on the iPad and Writing Assignments

Note-taking with ipad in lectures

I have been using the iPad in lectures for note taking for over half a week, and I still think that annotating on paper is more convenient for me. Typing on the iPad in lectures is inefficient and not practical for a beginner. Usually, I use GoodReader to take notes in the lectures with the purpose of testing, but this app tends to be more powerful when I am doing my  reflection essays because I could annotate the articles without printing them out, which proved really useful. Sometimes, when I cannot find a proper way to download the articles I need, then I use Quickoffice to create a new text and paste the article on it.

Doing essays with ipad

I have not finished an essay solely rely on ipad, just use it to type some ideas or replace laptop to do essay on the train or in the university. However, when I finish the essay, I still need to transfer it to the computer through email, in order to reorganize the structure and layout.

Transferring the screenshots

Firstly, Email the document to myself through GoodReader

Secondly, Check my email and download it to my computer.

Thirdly, Open the document and use QQ Screenshot function to cut down the content I need in the form of picture.

Lastly, Upload it  to the website.

About taking notes on ipad

I have tried to take notes on ipad for a week, personally, I wanna give it up coz I already get use to writing on paper, and typing on ipad gonna distract my mind from the lecture. Perhaps if I keep on using it, I gonna get adapted, but it will take a long time.

Another problem is, ipad cannot operate the order when I am trying to play the Video on VLE or order an appointment with Global tablent for career advice.

By the way, is it possible to set up a platform on which we can review all the lectures’ videos or records?

a little bit thinking

Actually, I have been using ipad for half a year, with a motive of improving my English. I chose it here because I could connect to the free wifi all over the campus or even some areas around campus, really pretty convenient for me. Basically, I usually watch BBC  with ipad, the bigger size of screen tends to be more adorable compared with Android tablet and smart phones.

Till now, I have not taken any notes with ipad because I did not know how to make it before, and that was a problem puzzling me all the time. But, since last tablet meeting, I have already got the relevant applications which enable me to make it possible. Personally, I prefer to use tablet to reserve my study materials and make notes, especially, I can get back my data through the itunes even some technical or physical problems come up.

Next week, I gonna use it in classes~cannot wait~~~
