2020 DIGITAL STUDENT NOTEBOOK

GUIDE ON HOW TO NAVIGATE AND USE

SUMMARY | ON HOW TO USE THIS NOTEBOOK

The Digital Student Notebook is meant to be duplicated and used for each class you are taking (one notebook per class).

There are 6 main sections within the notebook indicated by the tabs to the right-Overview, Tasks, Lecture Notes, Additional Notes, and Assignments. These hyperlinked tabs always remain on the screen and therefore are your primary source of navigation. The top tab with three lines will take you to the Table of Contents where every section and page listed has been hyperlinked to its corresponding page. Blank papers and templates meant to be copy-and-pasted within your notebook are listed under “Notebook Paper”. Templates are found by tapping on the “Blank Templates” hyperlink located at the bottom of this section.

IMPORTANT! DON’T ACCIDENTALLY RECORD INFORMATION WITHIN THE BLANK TEMPLATES SECTION. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE NAVIGATED TO THE APPROPRIATE TAB AND/OR COPY AND PASTED THE BLANK TEMPLATE TO THE CORRECT LOCATION BEFORE USING IT.
