Tools for Getting Organized

I'm always looking for ways to stay organized, especially going into a new year. There are a couple of tools available through NDSU that I'm hoping will help me, Google Keep and Microsoft OneNote.

Google Keep is an app for keeping notes, lists and reminders. It allows you to take notes that include text, images and audio, and organize those notes under "labels." You can color code your notes and invite collaborators to share a note with you. Keep is available through any Google account, including your NDSU Google account. You can access it through an app on Android or iOS, and through Google apps on your web browser.

Like Keep, Microsoft OneNote is a great tool for organization, but it is built to accommodate the "power user." You can store loads of notes and ideas in OneNote, organize them into "notebooks," and even link between those "notebooks." OneNote is available through your NDUS Office 365 account and as an app for your phone (Android, IOS or Windows). There's also a version of OneNote that's part of Windows 10, so you may already have it on your computer.

If you are looking to stay organized this year, I hope you'll try one, or both, of these tools.Good luck!
