Summary paragraph:
I would like to introduce to my students a note taking tool that they could use in all the courses to organize their course work (notes, lab data, etc.)

Goal:
Introduce to students the web based note taking tool “Evernote”.

Indicators:
Students are using Evernote on a daily basis for organizing their course work.

Action Plan
Baby Step 1
• Have students download the Evernote program.

Baby Step 2
Remainder of 1st quarter: Have students who are interested in using the program “self-enroll” in its use.
Make the use of Evernote a course requirement for all students at the beginning of 2nd quarter.
Baby Step 3
Include in the course survey at the end of 1st semester a set of questions regarding effectiveness of Evernote at a learning tool.
