If you're on this page, it's because you are interested in using a digital notebook, but you don't want to make it yourself or pay $25 for a PDF that you might not use as much as you intended.
The digital notebooks included in this course are simple notebooks that get the job done without all the fancy bells and whistles.
Rather than waste usable space by designing the pages to mimic the look of a physical planner or notebook, the pages in these notebooks - with the exception of the 12 small, hyperlinked tabs at the bottom of each page - are completely blank and ready for your notes, doodles, charts, images, etc.
The two notebooks can be downloaded as many times as you'd like, which means that once you buy this course, you never need to spend money on buying another spare notebook.
What do you get inside in each of these digital notebooks?
12 colorful section dividers with hyperlinked tabs at the bottom of each page. Just tap on the tabs and you'll go straight to the corresponding section divider.
-> Don't like the colors? Just cover them with your favorite 12 photos or your own personal designs. [Example below.]
5 blank page templates that you can customize for your exact needs
-> As long as you keep 1 template blank, you can make as many copies of it as you want to create more and more unique templates.
-> Each template includes the 12 hyperlinked tabs at the bottom of the page, making navigating through your notebook quick and easy.
A simple notebook cover that's a blank slate for your customization
-> A matching back cover keeps the notebook nice and symmetrical

Is there anything else included in this course in addition to the notebook PDFs?
Yes! Other than the free preview video showcasing the journal, I've also created a two-part video demonstrating how I customized the portrait mode notebook (vertical design).
It's not a tutorial!
But, it can help spark your imagination if you're not sure what templates you might like to make.
I also want to make sure you have all the facts before you make the decision to buy this course: My first few attempts of creating digital planners and journals are free to download on my website.
They are a bit more limited than these two, though.
The digital notebook similar to these two only has six hyperlinked sections, so you can't really use it as a planner.
The digital planner has enough sections, but the tabs are already labeled by month. So, if you wanted to use it to organize a lot of different types of information that aren't tied to a yearly schedule, the planner doesn't really match that goal. Plus, the planners are designed to look like physical notebooks, so there's a lot less usable space available on each page.
I feel the notebooks included in this course are the best of both worlds. You can download them once and use them as a planner. You can download them again, and use them to organize 12 different types of information. Then, you can start all over again with new downloaded versions, year after year, or project after project.
Whether you prefer a portrait or landscape page layout, you have your choice of both in this course.
But, if you'd rather try the free options first, I understand. I only want you to buy these notebooks if they're the best match for you!
Note: I actually have a free sample notebook here on Teachable, too, that includes 5 of the templates from the journal in "Customizable Digital Bullet Journal for Teachers and Grad Students."
Who are these digital notebooks NOT for?
Someone who wants a digital notebook with all the bells and whistles.
-> If you want it to look exactly like a physical notebook, these two are not for you.
Someone with absolutely NO experience using a hyperlinked PDF or digital notebook, and doesn't plan on doing any research on it.
-> There are plenty of tutorials on YouTube that you can watch and learn from. I have a few of my own about Good Notes 4 that you can find on my digital planner themed blog post. But if you want to know how to customize a digital notebook without doing any research on your own, I suggest buying my full course on the topic. It includes a 6-sectioned digital journal with 37 templates already made for you. With 9 video tutorials alongside the journal, you can learn how to customize it without leaving the course.
Important Note: If you are interested in buying sets of these notebooks for your employees, coworkers, friends, students, etc., there are pricing options in addition to simply purchasing this course for your personal use.
The "cohort" price includes access to the course for 10 individuals.
The "class set" price includes access to the course for 31 individuals.
The pricing for each of these options takes into account the bulk purchase of the course. Rather than paying the full price for each individual's access to the course, 20% of the cost is deducted from the total purchase price.*
*If you need a larger order than 31, email me at [email protected] I can add additional bulk purchase options to the pricing page.
Now that we've covered all that information, you can head straight to the checkout page with the button below. Or, you can keep scrolling down and check out the free preview video of the portrait mode notebook before making your final decision.
