  4. 4. Comparisons<br />
  5. 5. Pros & Cons - Evernote<br />
  6. 6. Pros & Cons - Dropbox<br />
  7. 7. Noteworthy…<br />Evernoteand Dropboxare often introduced together (through personal experience as well as through online learning communities) as if they were two sides of the same coin. <br />Although the two are often linked, after downloading and trying both, I find that they are both useful apps, and that they both have specific, but different purposes.<br />The key to the success of both is the ability to seamlessly sync to multiple mobile and handheld devices, regardless of type or platform.<br />
  8. 8. Benefits to Learning – EVERNOTE<br />After evaluation, following are thoughts on incorporating use of these apps in learning:<br />EVERNOTE – excellent take-along productivity tool of students for note-taking on any device and sharing contents of account with other. <br />Examples: collaborative learning activities, planning, graphics sharing, journaling, brainstorming. <br />
  9. 9. Benefits to Learning - Dropbox<br />After evaluation, following are thoughts on incorporating use of these apps in learning:<br />DROPBOX– excellent way to share files/documents online. Within the Dropbox “Public” folder individual files can be shared (rather than entire Public folder). <br />Examples: collaborative, easy online<br /> file sharing. <br />
