  • An integrated platform for citation , note-taking , outlining , document archiving and annotation , and collaborative research .
  • Note: There are tutorials on notecards, tagging and other features of the Tabletop here:
  • NoodleTools comes in 3 different levels corresponding roughly to novices (elementary), middle school and ESL, and high school/college All three levels are available for all three styles: MLA, APA and Chicago.
  • On the Dashboard, students can review their own 30-day logs. The logs have been enhanced to clearly show when items in the project are added or deleted, plus it gives the total number of citations and notecards to that point in time. We will continue to add self-assessment features so that students gain a sense of ownership and responsibility for their work.
  • Tutorial on sharing a project with a teacher ’s dropbox:
  • Note: Tutorial on how to share a project with a team:
  • Always see the same format: Part on top Whole on bottom
  • WorldCat Admin can turn this off. Search by ISBN, Title or Author Additional search options like publication date. Behind the scenes we do a first pass over the data that gets imported, making some smart changes to the title and publication information based on the citation style. Cover, authors, publication information - verify it is the right source. Import selected source.
  • Exclusive partnership with iCyte to provide a way for students to permanently archive and annotate Web pages and PDFs that they use, so that they have a snapshot of the source from the time they actually cited or took notes on it. Teachers can also view this archived version when the project is shared. Useful for things like Wikis, Web pages, blogs, tweets Requires a bookmarklet to be added to the browser ’s toolbar.
  • Checkbox and help text at the bottom of each form allowing student to omit particular citations from a final exported list. By default, we include a citation for every source in the student ’s bibliography. We give “traffic light” indicator (red, yellow, green) with help that explains when a particular source is usually, sometimes, or rarely included. For example, in Chicago style those history teachers want you to omit well-known reference works. But if the student was creating an annotated bibliography, she might NEED citations for all sources and this feature gives them that flexibility.
