5 Benefits of Online Note-Taking in School

Uploaded Image

Note taking online has a lot of benefits when it comes to school. Here's some of them.

  1. You won't have to look anywhere else for your notes.

    If all your notes were in one place, you wouldn't have to refer back to other pages to find your lecture notes, or your PDF's if you had them uploaded on Note Canvas.

  2. You will save so much time on dealing with school work.

    As an added bonus of convenience, you will save much more time looking for your notes. With online classes being much more common, teachers are more inclined to give students more work, since they're thinking that you have much more time on your hands now. Writing your notes in Note Canvas somewhat mitigates this problem by making it easier for you to search for your notes, having all your notes in one place, etc.

  3. The mere fact you are writing notes helps your retention of your school subjects.

    In other words, writing in and of itself helps you memorize the content, since, as you are writing your school notes, those notes are slowly being embedded into your memory.

  4. It will keep track of things you missed.

    This is a very underrated fact, and here's why.

    Imagine you're looking for your lecture notes via your school's online class portal. All those notes/lecture videos are separated by about 3 pages (The link to the class, The link to the chapter, and possibly the link to the lecture video).

    With Note Canvas, you only have to click once! The fact that all your notes are concentrated in one place makes it so much easier to search for notes, as opposed to searching in a site where the page structure is decentralized.

  5. It directly leads to a better grade.

    It seems obvious, but actually, there is also research (p. 19) that found that note-taking improves people's grades by a "modest" amount as opposed to not taking notes at all.
